Free tows offered for Cinco de Mayo drunks

Drivers who need a tow home after drinking during Thursday’s Cinco de Mayo festivities will be able to find one through a special AAA service, the organization’s officials announced today.

The free service, referred to as the Tipsy Tow, will be offered from 6 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday throughout Northern California, according to the nonprofit.

The organization is opening up the service to everyone, not just AAA members, officials said.

Although it has to be within ten miles, any motorist can call (800) 222-4357 and ask for a free one-way ride home that includes a vehicle tow, according to AAA.

Additional passengers who need a ride will be taken to the driver’s home as well if there is enough room for them to be taken safely in the tow truck, according to AAA.

Reservations for the service cannot be made in advance.
