About 47 million people will be traveling 50 miles or more this Thanksgiving holiday. In an effort to keep drunk drivers off the road over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, the AAA Auto Club is offering their ‘Tow to Go’ program this Wednesday through Saturday. Tow to Go is a confidential ride home and tow , within a 10 mile radius, and both the ride and tow are free of charge. You don’t even have to be a AAA member. The number to call is (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246. You can’t make an appointment to use the Tow to Go service, it is designed to be used as a last resort so have a designated driver before you have your first drink.
