Free, Safe Ride Home on New Year’s Eve

Oh, if you hang with me on Facebook too, I’m going to sound like such a broken record.


But, really, truly, I think this is THAT important.  A friend shared this on her FB wall today:


NO excuses folks. Don’t drink and drive -and don’t ride with anyone who does!! Tipsy Tow offered by AAA: You don’t have to be a AAA member, from 6pm-6am on New Year’s Eve/Day, they will take your drunk self and your car home for FREE. Save this number, 1-800-222-4357. This is available nationwide!! Please repost this, if you don’t mind, to help save lives…Thank You!


I, skeptic that I am, immediately began poking around.  And found this.  And this.  And about a gazillion forums where it was in discussion.  It appears to be completely legit. points out that this may not be nationwide and you should call your local AAA to be sure– that’s always good advice whenever there’s a deal/promotion/special event going on.


I?  Am an old lady who will sip my champagne from the comfort of my own home and will likely conk out before the ball even drops.  This is my life.  But if you or someone you know is going out… or you know some teenagers… or college kids… or party girls… or even an older relative who might choose to partake of a couple…


Let them know about this option.  Pass it on.  Make a phone call to see if your local office is participating.


Getting people home safely so they can do it all again next year?


That works for me.

  • Ugh I am SO SORRY I didn’t research this. My friend called and found out it’s not in Washington, but CBS Sports radio is doing something for my area. SO definitely pass the word so people who jotted down this 800 # actually verify it works in their city. I will feel hideous if someone drives drunk because they planned to use this and it didn’t work.

    • Don’t be sorry at all, Heather! The fact that they’re doing it at ALL is amazing, in my opinion. I think people should always plan on double-checking to make sure a deal/promotion/offer is valid in their own areas. If even one life is saved because of this, it was totally worth it for everyone to spread the word.
