The service begins Sunday at 4 a.m. and continues through early Monday morning in metro Tulsa and Oklahoma City, and also in Ardmore, Bartlesville, Enid, Lawton, Muskogee, Shawnee and Tahlequah.

“Too many times, we hear of Oklahomans getting into trouble when they attempt to drive after drinking,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma.

“Over the holidays, up to 40 percent of all fatal crashes involve alcohol,” he said. “We know holiday partiers are going to drink. This way, motorists and their vehicles get home in one piece.”

To access AAA’s Tipsy Tow service, call 1-800-222-4357and ask for Tipsy Tow. The service is offered, no questions asked, to both AAA members and non-members alike.

AAA will provide you and your car a free ride home, within a 15-mile radius from the point of pick-up, anytime during the 16-hour period.
