AAA’s Holiday Safe Ride Home Program (formerly called “Tipsy Tow”) offers a free safe tow ride home for drinking drivers in Northern California. And you don’t even have to be a AAA member. You call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO and tell the operator, you need a safe ride home. In the past when this was called “Tipsy Tow,” you got a free tow up to 10 miles home, but we don’t have any updates as to what the restrictions are for 2019.
