AAA offering rides to impaired Super Bowl drivers

Posted: Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - AAA, The Auto Club Group and Bud Light are teaming up to offer intoxicated drivers in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee a free ride home during Super Bowl weekend.

AAA says that its "Tow to Go" service to discourage intoxicated driving began Friday morning and will be available through 6 a.m. on Monday. The service is offered at the availability of AAA drivers and will tow a vehicle, and give confidential rides for up to two people within a 10-mile radius. It is free to both AAA members and non-members.

The service will also run during eight holidays this year.

The program began in 1998 and AAA says during that 16-year span it has removed more than 23,000 intoxicated drivers from the roadways.
