AAA offering ‘tipsy tow’ service at Lake Tahoe for Super Bowl Sunday

In continuing its effort to prevent people from drinking and driving, AAA is offering its "tipsy tow" service on Super Bowl Sunday at Lake Tahoe.

The service, which is available to all motorists even if you're not a AAA customer, provides for free 10 miles of towing for a driver, one passenger and their vehicle. Additional miles are subject to a standard towing rate.

The service will start at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4, and run through 6 a.m. Monday, Feb. 5, wherever AAA offers emergency roadside service. To take advantage of the service, call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) and state that you need a "tipsy tow." Make sure to provide the driver's name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.

The service does not include roadside assistance and reservations are not accepted.

"If your Super Bowl party plans include alcohol, then you should also plan ahead for a safe ride home," Michael Blasky, spokesman for AAA Northern California, said in a press release. "But if those plans fall through, AAA can provide a 'Hail Mary' and tow your car home for free."
