Get Home Safe With Free AAA Tow
Club offering 15-mile rides home for New Year celebrators through Jan. 2.
The New Jersey Automobile Club wants you to get home safe after New Years celebrations so they are offering free rides back for residents in Union, Morris and Essex counties only.
To get a ride, call 973-467-2651, and press option #2. The free ride is limited to 15 miles, anything over that will be charged at $1 a mile, according to a representative. This service is available through Jan. 2, 2013.
The service is part of the AAA program that provides rides home to prevent drunk driving.
While not a nationwide program, a number of AAA clubs offer Tow-to-Go or Tipsy Tow service during certain holidays for members and nonmembers.
The service is only available in certain states across America, and only in certain counties like in New Jersey.
"As millions of Americans prepare to ring in the New Year, AAA urges motorists to remember the safety precautions they should take during this festive season. Drive only while drug and alcohol-free, select a designated driver for the evening, plan to take a cab or stay with a friend," according to their website.
The club has four locations in the area, including one hub in Springfield.
