Free tow home for New Year's Eve revelers
If your designated driver falls through for your New Year's Eve celebration, AAA Alaska is offering an alternative.
The group's Tipsy Tow program provides a free ride home and vehicle tow of up to 10 miles for anyone, not just AAA members. In Anchorage the service will be available starting at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 31 through 6 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1.
"We urge New Year's Eve revelers to have a sober ride home lined up before the ball drops," said AAA of Alaska spokeswoman Michelle Donati. "If those plans fall through, AAA's Tipsy Tow will not only provide a safe ride home for you and a passenger, but we'll get your vehicle home safely, too."
The number to call is 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357). Just tell the operator you need a Tipsy Tow.
The service will not take motorists to another drinking establishment or party. Other services like changing a flat tire or jump-starting a car are not covered by Tipsy Tow, and the service is limited to just the driver and a single passenger.
