If that champagne ends up flowing a bit too freely this New Year's Eve, AAA wants you to give them a call instead of getting behind the wheel.
That's because this New Year's, select AAAautomobile clubs will offer up tow trucks as de-facto taxi cabs to provide free lifts home for people who say they've had too much to drink. And they'll tow your car home as well.
Triple A's 'Tipsy Tow' service is being rolled out in a number of communities to help prevent drunk drivers from taking to the streets on what is traditionally one of the most dangerous and deadly nights to be on the road.
The program has been offered around other booze-friendly holidays, such as July 4th, Memorial Day and even Super Bowl Sunday.
If you need to use it, just dial 1-800-AAA-Help and a truck will be sent out to your location so long as you're within 10 miles of your home.
So, you know, it's the good kind of "drunk dialing." Go ahead and program that into your phone now maybe?
The program is not available everywhere, so AAA advises checking first with your local AAA program to see if they're participating.
Some places such as North and South Carolina have actually stopped using the service because too many people were abusing it.
AAA of the Carolinas spokesman Tom Crosby said that "Unfortunately, too many young people used it as a safety net to get from party to party to get as drunk as possible and still get home."
So, as with everything else on New Year's, just be responsible with it.
