AAA Oklahoma is offering its Tipsy Tow service over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Tipsy Tows are available from 6 p.m. Wednesday until 2 a.m. Monday in the Oklahoma City metro area, Tulsa metro area, Bartlesville, Ardmore, Enid, Lawton, Muskogee, Shawnee and Tahlequah. AAA Oklahoma will give the driver, up to one more person, and the vehicle a free ride home.
“The numbers are fairly staggering,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “Over the last five years, 35 percent of all fatal crashes in the state involved alcohol or drugs. These crashes have taken the lives of an average of 241 Oklahomans annually. That's 20 every month. Tipsy Tow provides an easy, safe option to drinking and driving.”
To request a Tipsy Tow, call 1-800-AAA-HELP (222-4357) and say, “I need a Tipsy Tow.”
Tows are limited to within a 15-mile radius from point of pickup and are offered free during the 104 hours of the long Thanksgiving weekend.
