AAA offers free New Year’s rides

CNJ staff

On New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, intoxicated drivers will have another way to get home besides getting behind the wheel of a car. AAA Texas/New Mexico is once again offering its “Tipsy Tow” program to members and non-members alike.

From 6 p.m. New Year’s Eve through midnight the following night, drivers who feel they have had too much to drink can call AAA’s Emergency Roadside Service program at 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) and a tow truck will take them and their car home free, up to a distance of 10 miles.
