AAA offering ‘Tipsy Tow’ for long Memorial Day weekend
May 22. 2014 10:09AM
AAA’s Tipsy Tow service is being offered by the auto club to those who feel unsafe behind the wheel after drinking over the long Memorial Day weekend. The driver receives a free ride home and so does the car.
“Let’s face it, holidays are a time to celebrate and social drinking is often a big part of that,” said Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. “But the sad truth is that alcohol continues to play a role in far too many crashes on South Dakota’s roadways. Tipsy Tow is an easy alternative. It’s free, confidential and open to AAA members and non-members alike.”
The service is available over the weekend from 6 p.m. Friday, May 23 until 4 a.m. Tuesday, May 27 in Sioux Falls, Rapid City, Mitchell and Yankton.
To access Tipsy Tow, call 1-800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP) and ask for a Tipsy Tow. The service is offered free, no questions asked. AAA will give you, up to one more person, and your car a ride home, within a 15-mile radius from the point of pick-up, anytime during the 82-hour period.
