The AAA Tow to Go program – for members and non-members is as a last defence to keep impaired drivers off the road during the holidays.


The service will be in place to help drivers who may have had too much to drink and don’t have a ride home. The AAA stresses that it should only be used as a last resort, with the service only available to one person and their vehicle.


AAA said it would dispatch a tow truck to those who call Tow To Go and take the driver and their vehicle to a safe location within a 10-mile radius.


According to AAA, Tow to Go aims to remove impaired drivers from roads and get people home safely on nights when impaired driving may be more likely.


AAA has offered Tow to Go during major holidays for 25 years. During that time, they removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from the road.


The number to call is (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.


Important Tow To Go Guidelines

Appointments cannot be scheduled in advance to use Tow to Go. It is designed as a safety net for those that did not plan ahead. Always choose a designated driver before celebrating.


The Tow to Go program operates here in Orlando and throughout Florida, and in addition offers service in Georgia (excluding Savannah), Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota, Nebraska, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Denver, Colorado, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Fort Wayne/South Bend, Indiana.
