“A free tow home if you get drunk!
You don’t even have to be a member. On New Years Eve and possibly New Years Day,
you get a one-time free tow for a limited number of miles (no rides for your passengers) to your residence.
Save Tipsy-Tow as a last ditch effort and have a plan for other ways to get home safely.

800-AAA-HELP  (California 800-400-4AAA)

MADD, The Center for Disease Control, law enforcement  and others all support well publicized DUI checkpoints as a deterrent for drivers that want to drink. Plan ahead, get your designated driver.
As a victim of a drunk driver, it is my wish that by posting this you will choose to not drink and drive.
