KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- AAA and Bud Light are teaming up to keep our roads safe over one of the most dangerous holiday weekends. Their "Tow to Go" program is designed to keep drunk drivers from getting behind the wheel. From July 4-7, anyone, whether they're a AAA member or not, can call and get their car towed home for free.

“The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of designated drivers and help prevent drunk driving,” said Kathy Casso, vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. “We’re pleased to partner with AAA and their roadside assistance drivers to help keep our roads safe.”

Since the program began a quarter-century ago, Tow to Go has offered lifts to more than 22,000 intoxicated drivers. AAA says the service is meant to be used as a last resort and warns that it is limited by the number of AAA drivers tow trucks during times of high call volume.

To take advantage of the service, drivers in East Tennessee are asked to call (800) 234-1222. Drivers in Middle Tennesse, Florida, or Georgia are asked to call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.
