Tipsy Tow Service Returns For St. Patrick’s Day

TipsyTow_ImageSt. Patrick’s Day upon us, and AAA wants to keep Irish eyes – and non-Irish eyes – smiling by offering a safe ride home.
“As a safety advocate, we urge revelers to include a safe ride home in their plans before they head out to drink green beer and Guinness,” says Linda Gorman, director of communications and public affairs for AAA Arizona. “Should their luck run out, AAA’s Tipsy Tow will be there to help get them home safely.”
AAA’s Tipsy Tow service will start at 6pm, Tuesday, March 17, and will run through 6am, Wednesday, March 18. Drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and/or restaurant managers should:

  • Call 1.800.AAA.HELP (1.800.222.4357) between 6pm March 17 and 6am March 18
  • State that they need a “Tipsy Tow”
  • Provide the driver’s name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.

Tipsy Tow provides a free 10-mile tow and ride home. For mileage beyond this, motorists are charged a standard towing rate. The service does not include roadside assistance.
There were more than 28,000 DUI arrests in Arizona in 2014, according to the Governor’s Office for Highway Safety. AAA estimates that a first-time DUI conviction can cost a motorist more than $10,000 in fines, penalties, legal fees and increased insurance costs.
