AAA offers free tow for drinking drivers New Year’s Eve

This year, AAA Utah is launching a new program called "Tipsy Tow." If you have too much to drink, just call AAA and you and your car will be towed home for free. The program is open to everyone. You do not need to be a AAA member to take advantage of this service to the community.

AAA will offer the service to drinking drivers from 6 p.m. on New Year’s Eve until 6 a.m. on New Year’s Day in Utah, Nevada and Northern California. Drivers, potential passengers, party hosts, bartenders and restaurant managers can call (800) 222-4357 for a free tow home of up to seven miles. Just tell the AAA operators "I need a Tipsy Tow," and a truck will be on its way.

The service will provide a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver’s home. If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver’s home as long as there is sufficient room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck. You cannot make a reservation.
