DEARBORN, Mich., (December 20, 2023) — AAA is working to keep impaired drivers off the road this holiday season. Friday night, the Auto Club Group will activate its Tow to Go program in Michigan and other select states.

“If you’re faced with the decision of driving impaired, put down those keys and pick up the phone to call Tow to Go,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “We’ll dispatch a truck to take you and your vehicle to a safe location within a 10-mile radius.” 

It’s important to note, AAA service technicians expect to rescue more than 937,000 drivers with car trouble during the upcoming holidays. So treat Tow to Go as a last resort. Plan ahead and identify a designated driver or ride sharing service before you party.
