AAA offers Tipsy Tow program on Super Bowl Sunday

Jan 30, 2014 11:13 AM

For those who find they have had a few too many when the final whistle blows at the end of Sunday’s big game, AAA is offering its “Tipsy Tow” program from 6 p.m. on Sunday until 6 a.m. Monday, February 3.

The program is the same program AAA offers during the New Year’s Eve celebration to help prevent drunk driving.

“Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most dangerous days of the year for motorists,” said Cynthia Harris, spokesperson for AAA Northern California. “If you’ve been drinking, don’t get behind the wheel. Give AAA a call and we’ll make sure you get home safely, and you don’t need to be a member to take advantage of this service.”

Drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and restaurant managers can call (800) 222-4357 for a free one-way ride home for the driver and their vehicle up to 10 miles. Additional passengers will be taken to the driver’s home as long as there is room for them to ride safely in the tow truck.

No reservations will be accepted.

AAA estimates a first time DUI conviction in California can cost up to $12,000 in fines, penalties, restitution, legal fees, and added insurance expenses.
