Take advantage of Tipsy Tow this holiday season
By Staff reports

Before climbing behind the wheel after drinking at a holiday party, AAA South Dakota hopes you’ll think again and call them for a free Tipsy Tow ride home for you, your vehicle and one more person.

“Over Christmas and New Year’s, up to 40 percent of all traffic crashes involve alcohol,” said Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. “But motorists do have options: use a designated driver, serve non-alcoholic mocktails at parties (see 2013 Mocktail Mix-Off recipes at or call AAA for a Tipsy Tow.”

Tipsy Tow is being offered free from 6 p.m. this Friday, Dec. 13 until 4 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 2 in Sioux Falls, Rapid City, Mitchell and Yankton.

“Last year, we had 77 calls for Tipsy Tows over the year-end holidays,” said Buskohl. “We hope even more call us this year. We know South Dakotans will be drinking – we just don’t want them driving, too.”

The service is free to AAA members and non-members alike but tows are limited to within a 15-mile radius from point of pickup. Call 1-800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP) and ask for a Tipsy Tow home.
