SACRAMENTO - As part of their dedication to keeping the roads a safe place for all motorists, the Automobile Club will once again be offering their "Tipsy Tow" program on New Years Eve.

As the name implies, if you've had a few too many while celebrating the coming year, you can call 1-800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP), tell the operator, "I need a Tipsy Tow," and the truck will come to collect you and your vehicle.

The offer is good to both AAA members and non-members. The service offers a free, one-way tow up to 10 miles for the driver and additional passengers if there is space in the tow truck.

Local law enforcement agencies vowed to crackdown on drinking and driving this New Years Eve, so why risk the physical, emotional and financial toll associated with drunk driving? Rather than get behind the wheel if you've been drinking, call AAA and get yourself, your friends and your vehicle home safely.

The AAA offers the service from 6 p.m. Saturday, December 31 through 6 a.m. Sunday, January 1.
