AAA Arizona is taking the labor out of finding a safe ride home with its "Tipsy Tow" service.
To keep people safe this final summer holiday, the auto club is offering the service starting at 6 p.m. Sunday and running through 6 a.m. Monday.
To take advantage of Tipsy Tow, drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and/or restaurant managers should:
- Call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) between 6 p.m. September 2 and 6 a.m. September 3
- State that they need a "Tipsy Tow"
- 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 up to 10 miles.
Services will not be provided to motorists requesting a tow to another drinking establishment or another destination other than their home.
A tow to a hotel may be allowed if the motorist is a guest or plans to become one.
For trips longer than 10 miles, motorists will be charged the towing company's standard rate.
