OKLAHOMA CITY -- Behind New Years Eve, AAA reports St. Patrick's Day as the second-highest holiday when it comes to alcohol consumption.  With that in mind, AAA now offers the same "Tipsy Tow" program it offers on other holidays. 

"There's no excuse at all, because drinking and driving [has] very dangerous and sometimes deadly consequences," said Cleveland County Sheriff's spokesperson, Meghan McCormick.

With Tipsy Tow, if you call 1-800-222-4357 on St. Patrick's Day, AAA will send a tow truck your way. That truck will take you and a friend and your car up to 15 miles home.  And they will do it for free. 

AAA Spokesman Chuck Mai says the tow truck driver won't ask any questions, they won't even ask you your name.  They just want to get you home safely.
