TowNews Posted September 1, 2022 Share Posted September 1, 2022 NORTH DAKOTA: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 28 people in the U.S. die in drunk-driving crashes every day – that is one person every 52 minutes. In an effort to prevent these tragedies, AAA will be reactivating its Tow to Go program for the holiday period. The Tow to Go program provides safe transportation for impaired drivers and their vehicles. Over the lifespan of the program, AAA has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from the road. “Driving impaired is never a good idea, especially on a busy holiday weekend. Whatever you do, do not drive impaired. If you cannot find a safe ride, call Tow to Go and AAA can give you a lift,” Waiters said. Tow to Go will be active from 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6. When called, AAA dispatches a tow truck to transport the would-be impaired driver and their vehicle to a safe location within a 10-mile radius. The service is free, yet AAA asks that it be treated as a backup plan. Tow to Go service areas include: Florida Iowa Michigan North Dakota Nebraska Tennessee Wisconsin Colorado (Denver) North Carolina (Charlotte) Indiana (Fort Wayne/South Bend) Georgia Tow to Go guidelines: Provided from 6p.m. Friday, Sept. 2 to 6a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6 Free and available to AAA members and non-members Confidential local ride for one person and their vehicle to a safe location within a 10-mile radius Appointments cannot be scheduled in advance to use Tow to Go. It is designed as a safety net for those that did not plan ahead. Always choose a designated driver before celebrating In some situations, AAA may need to make other arrangements to get an impaired individual a safe ride home Tow to Go may not be available in rural areas or during severe weather conditions Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
