Tipsy drivers can get ride back home

AAA Oklahoma officials are offering people who have been drinking a free ride home for themselves and their vehicle. “If you've been drinking, why take a chance and drive? We are offering a safe, free alternative,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for the auto club. “We know alcohol is going to be consumed at holiday parties, whether at a friend or relative's house or while out on the town. When the party's over, we just want to make sure the roads are as safe as possible for everybody.” AAA will give a driver and one more person — plus the vehicle — a free ride home within 15 miles. The service is offered from 6 p.m. Wednesday until 2 a.m. Monday in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Lawton, Bartlesville, Enid, Muskogee, Shawnee and Tahlequah. Call (800) 222-4357 — (800) AAA-HELP — and tell the AAA operator, “I need a Tipsy Tow.” You do not need to be a member of AAA to call.
