Since it started back in in 1998, Tow to Go has removed more than 20,000 intoxicated drivers from the roads. The service is designed to be used as a last resort. It is offered based on availability of AAA Service Technicians and tow trucks during times of high call volume.

Tow To Go Guidelines:
•Tow trucks can take up to two people home; if there are more people in your party-you will need to make other arrangements to get home safely.
•You can't make an appointment to use the Tow to Go service, it is designed to be used as a last resort so have a designated driver before you have your first drink.
•If a person is too intoxicated to be safely transported in a tow truck, AAA may need to contact law enforcement to assist with getting the intoxicated individual a safe ride home.
