Tipsy Tow Program Works To Keep Oklahoma Drivers Safe

AAA Oklahoma is offering a free ride home and tow service for people who may consume too much alcohol to safely drive over the holiday season.

The service is available from 6 p.m. Friday until 4 a.m. on Jan 2. The service is available in Shawnee, Bartlesville, Enid, Muskogee, Ardmore, Tahlequah, Lawton and the metro areas of Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

AAA Oklahoma spokesman Chuck Mai says the company received nearly 200 calls for the service during the holidays last year and hope the number goes up this year.

The service is free for AAA members and non-members. But the service is limited to within a 15-mile radius from the point of pickup.

People interested in Tipsy Tow can call 800-AAA-HELP.
