Tow to Go: AAA offers free tipsy tow service on Labor Day

Don't get behind the wheel and drive drunk after indulging on Labor Day.

Instead, arrive alive and get a free tow home from the American Automobile Association's Tow to Go program. The offer is open on Monday, Sept. 3, to everyone, no membership required, but should only be used as a last resort. The offer is based on availability of trucks and call volumes.

The Florida Highway Patrol will be cracking down on impaired drivers as it wraps up its participation in the national Drive Sober or "Get Pulled Over" campaign.

Call 1-800-AAA-Help and a tow truck will deliver you and your vehicle home safely, no charge and no questions asked. The free service, a partnership between AAA and Budweiser, is 100 percent confidential.

In 2011, AAA received 3,000 calls; more than 18,000 intoxicated drivers have used Tow to Go vs. since the program began in 1998, according to a press release.

Free Tow to Go coverage is offered in Florida, Georgia and parts of Tennessee.
