Free AAA Tow To Go On Blackout Wednesday, Thanksgiving In Florida

AAA is offering free confidential rides and towing this Thanksgiving holiday to both AAA members and non-members in Florida.

Drivers who have had too much to drink on Thanksgiving Eve (also known as “Blackout Wednesday” and “Drinksgiving”), Thanksgiving Day, or Black Friday can take advantage of the free program by calling (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.

Florida saw 782 crashes caused by impaired drivers during the Thanksgiving holiday last year, according to Florida Highway Patrol crash citation data.

AAA’s free Tow-to-Go starts on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, and ends at 6 a.m. on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

The AAA tow truck transports the vehicle and driver home or somewhere safe within 10 miles.

Tow trucks can usually transport up to two people. If there are more people in your party, you will need to make other arrangements to get them home safely.

Since 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and the Midwest.

Tow to Go also enables AAA and Budweiser to remind the public to always plan ahead when celebrating the holidays with alcohol.

That means choosing a Designated Driver, staying where you are celebrating, or arranging for another form of safe transportation.
