AAA is bringing motorists the luck of the Irish with an alternative ride home this St. Patrick’s Day, and that’s no blarney.
“St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated by drinking green beer and other spirits, so we urge revelers to include a safe ride home in their plans for the evening,” said Michael Blasky, spokesman for AAA Northern California.
AAA’s Tipsy Tow service will start 6 p.m. Saturday, and run through 6 a.m. Sunday.
To take advantage of the service, drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and/or restaurant managers should call 1-800-222-4357 and state that they need a Tipsy Tow. Drivers should be prepared to provide their name, home address, phone number, location and vehicle description.
Tipsy Tow provides a free ride home and vehicle tow of up to 10 miles. For mileage beyond this, motorists are charged a standard towing rate. The service does not include roadside assistance. You do not have to be a AAA member to use the service.
