Towing Services Provide Free Towing for St. Patrick’s Day Partygoers

Mar 17th, 2011 | By | Category: National News

Some towing services around the country are offering free towing for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday today, according to reports.

AAA is offering their usual Tipsy Tow and Tow to Go programs, in states including Northern California, Arizona, and Georgia from 6 p.m. Thursday, March 17, to 6 a.m. Friday, March 18, for motorists who have had a little too much Guinness. To take advantage of the service, partygoers should call AAA at 1-800-AAA-HELP and ask for a Tipsy Tow or Tow to Go, and provide the driver’s name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.

Tipsy Tow provides a one-way ride for the driver, one passenger and their vehicle at no cost for up to 10 miles (in Arizona) and 5 miles (in Northern California). Services will not be provided to motorists requesting a tow to another drinking establishment or to a destination other than their home. A tow to a hotel may be allowed if the motorist is, or plans to become, a guest.

Other services that will not be provided include: requests for a vehicle start, flat tire change, gas delivery and/or taxi service. For trips longer than the appointed miles, motorists can expect to be charged the towing company’s standard rate. You don’t need to be a AAA member to take advantage of the service.
