NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Thirty-six percent of consumers always use a designated driver after drinking, yet 1 in 5 reportedly rarely or never use one, according to a recent AAA Consumer Pulse survey.
To help make sure everyone has a safe ride home, AAA and Bud Light have partnered to offer the “Tow to Go” program for the holidays.
The program is designed to help discourage an intoxicated driver from getting behind the wheel. Anyone, AAA member or not, can call for a ride, beginning Friday through Wednesday, Jan. 1.
In the past year, consumers reported several popular ways to thank their designated drivers, ranging from paying for dinner to buying a tank of gas.
Since its inception in 1998, the program has safely removed more than 22,000 intoxicated drivers from the roads. The service is designed to be used as a last resort. It is offered based on availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume.
The Auto Club Group has provided the service for more than 15 years in an effort to protect the freedom and mobility of motorists on our roadways.
To obtain a ride home, residents may call 855-286-9246.
