AAA offering its free 'Tipsy Tow' rides during St. Patrick's Day

AAA offers free Tow to Go rides to keep drunken drivers off Michigan roads St. Patrick's Day weekend

Drivers planning to go out and celebrate St. Patrick's Day but need a way to get back home are in luck.

According to the most recent available Michigan State Police Criminal Justice Information Center statistical reports from 2017, almost 6 percent of total auto crashes in Michigan were alcohol-related on St. Patrick's Day weekend (Mar 17- Mar 19); and 14 percent of the total traffic fatalities in Michigan on St. Patrick's Day weekend were alcohol-related.

In order to deter drinking and driving, AAA is offering what it calls a "St. Patrick's Day Tipsy Tow".

The deal is available to AAA members and non-members alike. An AAA tow truck will take you and your vehicle home. "Make sure they have a plan to get home safe at the end of the night, and for those that don't, that find themselves in that situation where they don't have a sober way home, Tow To Go is there as a safety net".

The service is available from noon on St. Patrick's Day (Saturday) until 4 a.m. on Sunday in Enid, in metro Tulsa, and Oklahoma City, Muskogee, Bartlesville, Tahlequah, Ardmore, Lawton and Shawnee.
