Tipsy drivers offered free tows this weekend

AAA Hawaii is offering a free ride home and tow service for drivers who drink over the New Year’s holiday weekend.

The “Tipsy Tow” service is available through 6 a.m. Sunday on Oahu, Kauai, Maui and Hawaii island. The service began 6 p.m. Friday.

Drivers who call 800-222-4357 can get a free tow of up to five miles. The service excludes rides for passengers and is limited to a one-way ride to the driver’s home. For distances farther than five miles, drivers will pay the rate charged by the tow truck contractor.

AAA Hawaii reminds drivers it only takes one or two drinks to slow physical and mental skills, affecting vision, steering, braking, judgment and reaction time.
