(Savannah Reporters are invited to the Tow to Go press event, Wed., March 15th)

WHY:

This press event will highlight the dangers of impaired driving and provide alternative resources for drivers to get home safely.

As St. Patrick's Day approaches this month, it's imperative that drivers take steps to stay off the road if they are impaired. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), St. Patrick's Day is one of the deadliest holidays on U.S. roadways. In 2020, more than 11,000 people died in drunk-driving crashes. Those deaths could have been avoided if the impaired drivers found a safe ride home instead of driving drunk (NHTSA). Alcohol, drugs, and even prescription medications can affect your ability to drive and cause unnecessary risks for everyone on the roadway.

WHO:

AAA-Georgia will hold a Savannah "Tow to Go" press event. Representatives from Georgia State Patrol, Local Law Enforcement, and AAA Public Affairs will be available for media interviews.

WHEN:

Wednesday, March 15, 2023, at 10:00 a.m.

WHERE:

AAA Savannah
712 Mall Boulevard

Savannah, GA 31406
