To help make sure everyone has a safe ride home, AAA and Bud Light will offer the Tow to Go program for St. Patrick's weekend partiers.
The program is designed to help discourage an intoxicated driver from getting behind the wheel. Anyone, AAA member or not, can call for a Tow to Go ride from March 14-17.
Any intoxicated driver may call for a Tow to Go ride from any bar or restaurant. St. Patrick's weekend has become the second busiest holiday for the Tow to Go program, next to New Year's Eve weekend. As a result of the expected increase in call volume, AAA will provide additional service vehicles including vans and pick-up trucks, to provide some callers with a local ride home without a vehicle tow.
"This program is free and available to take callers home within a 10-mile radius from downtown Savannah based on available resources," said Gerry Gutowski, senior vice president with The Auto Club Group. "It's important that everyone plan ahead and choose a designated driver before they go out to celebrate St. Patrick's Day weekend, because taxis and services such as Tow to Go are going to be extremely busy in Savannah."
"Don't just rely on luck to get you home safely this St. Patrick's Day," said Kathy Casso, vice president of corporate social responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. "Adults should plan ahead to ensure they've arranged a safe ride home."
Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 23,000 intoxicated drivers from the roads.
