July 03, 2018 - 8:40 am

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS Radio) - The American Automobile Association is offering its Tipsy Tow service for Bay Area residents for 
the Fourth of July holiday so they don't see the "red, white and blue" of police sirens pulling them over for impaired driving.

From 6:00 p.m. Wednesday to 6:00 a.m. Thursday, AAA will offer a free tow of up to 10 miles for a driver, one passenger and their vehicle, and AAA membership is not required.

To use the service, people can call (800) AAA-HELP and say they need a Tipsy Tow.

"We want drivers to think twice about getting behind the wheel if they're impaired, while offering them a resource they can rely on if they find themselves in a precarious situation," AAA Northern California spokesman Michael Blasky said in a statement.
