Tipsy Towing Service Offered for Halloween

AAA has expanded its popular & free safe ride service.

AAA Tidewater has expanded its Tipsy Towing services to include Halloween, 13NewsNow reports. The service is popular for the holidays each year, but has expanded to begin this weekend. The program will run Friday through the new year. The holidays are some of the most dangerous times for drivers, as many revelers don’t think twice before climbing behind the wheel drunk.

The Tipsy Towing service offers a free, easy way for people to get home safely. Simply call (757) 631-1700 and request to be picked up. They’ll arrange not only to take you home, but will make sure your car arrives back to your house safely as well. The best part? You don’t have to be a AAA member to take part in the program.

Drunk Driving A Problem During Halloween

This is a wonderful service that we should all take advantage of this holiday season. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently revealed that in fatal Halloween crashes from 2009-2013, 43 percent of the accidents involved a drunk driver. Generally, 30 percent of all fatal crashes involve alcohol or drug-impaired drivers.

The time between Halloween and New Years Day are some of the most fun days of the entire year. Make sure you and your friends are around to celebrate again next year. Take advantage of the Tipsy Towing service, call a cab or use a ride-sharing service like Uber or Lyft to get home safely. Remember, even buzzed driving is drunk driving, so don’t take the risk of getting behind the wheel after only one or two drinks. It’s just not worth it.
