AAA offering free rides on July 4

Tipsy Tow is intended as a "last resort", with AAA urging people to avoid drinking and driving by designating a sober driver or using a ride-hailing service.

The American Automobile Association (AAA) projects 44 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles this Independence Day, making it the most traveled ever.

For those that did not plan ahead and need the Tow To Go program, it is available through 6 a.m. Wednesday morning, July 5th.

A regular AAA Texas-contracted roadside service truck will be dispatched.

The driver's name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location will be needed. In Las Vegas, residents and visitors were given $10,000 worth of free ride Lyft credits to encourage passengers to celebrate responsibly. Reservations are not accepted. "Drivers should be aware that the CHP and law enforcement agencies are likely using sobriety checkpoints and extra patrols to look for drinking drivers during the holiday".

Before and at social events, designate non-drinking drivers who can get everyone home safely.

Never serve alcohol to those under age 21.

Call a friend or family member for a ride home if you've been drinking.

Never ride as a passenger in a vehicle driven by someone who was drinking alcohol or using drugs. What's more, there are options if you've been drinking-public transit is an easy way to traverse the city, or you could leave your auto and take a rideshare (i.e. Uber, Lyft, etc.).

Remember: prescription, over-the-counter medications and illegal drugs also can impair your ability to drive safely.
