DUI with AAA’s Tipsy Tow
Jan. 31, 2017 – On Super Bowl Sunday, AAA encourages fans who have been partying too much to go with the option play and hand off driving duties to AAA’s Tipsy Tow. The service is free and open to the public, no questions asked.
From 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 5 until 4 a.m. Monday, Feb. 6, if you feel unsafe behind the wheel, AAA will make sure you and your vehicle get home safely. AAA’s community service is available in Sioux Falls, Rapid City, Mitchell and Yankton.
“Let’s face it, we know there’ll be lots of people drinking on Super Bowl Sunday and we have no problem with that,” said Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. “Just don’t put yourself and everyone else on the road at risk by trying to drive when you know you shouldn’t.”
Besides using AAA’s Tipsy Tow, Super Bowl fans who know they’ll be drinking are encouraged to designate a driver, or call a taxi. There are many options – AAA says no one should ever feel pressured into drive after drinking.
To call for a Tipsy Tow ride for you and your vehicle and up to one more passenger, call 1-800-AAA HELP (222-4357) and tell the AAA dispatcher you need a Tipsy Tow. AAA will get you and your car home safely free within a 15 mile radius from the point of pick up.
NOTE: Tipsy Tow is not available nationwide. Check with the AAA clubs in the states you’ll be visiting to make sure the service is offered there
