TAMPA, Fla. (May 23, 2019) — AAA and Budweiser will activate ‘Tow to Go’ for Memorial Day holiday weekend.  The service aims to prevent Floridians from driving while impaired, by providing a complimentary ride for the driver and their vehicle. You do not have to be a AAA member to use this service.

Tow to Go services are available from Friday, May 24 — Tuesday, May 28 at 6 a.m.

"More than 2 million Floridians will hit the road this holiday weekend, but some may not make it home safely if they drive impaired," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "If you plan to party this weekend, be sure to designate a sober driver before the party starts. If you do not have a safe ride home, call AAA. We’ll provide a safe and confidential ride for both you and your vehicle."

Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and Midwest. Visit AAA.com/TowToGo to learn more
