AAA offers free towing on July 4th


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — If you have a little too much to drink while celebrating the 4th of July, AAA wants to make sure you get home safely.

The ‘Tow for Life’ program will tow your vehicle up to 10 miles at no charge.

It’s all an effort to reduce accidents from drunk driving during the holiday. Clay Ingram, AAA spokesperson, says the company wants to encourage people to plan ahead before celebrating.

It is important to make arrangements before you go out, so that you aren’t making these decisions after you have been drinking.

You can request a tow by calling 1-800-222-4357 (1-800-AAA-HELP).
