AAA Tipsy Tow offering free rides home this Christmas

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

AAA is trying to help Arizona residents avoid impaired driving this holiday season by offering their Tipsy Tow service on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The AAA Tipsy Tow service will begin at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 24, and will run through 6 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 25.

In order to request the service, partygoers will have to call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) and say that they need a "Tipsy Tow."

A quick rundown of name, address, phone number and current location will provide a one-way ride for the driver, one passenger and their vehicle at no cost for up to 10 miles.

For trips longer than 10 miles, motorists will be charged the towing company's standard rate.

Pub crawlers need not apply as the services will not be provided to motorists requesting a tow to another drinking establishment or to a destination other than their home.

A tow to a hotel may be allowed if the motorist is a guest or plans to become one.
