He said usually the rides are entertaining, and he has fun conversations with the people he tows home. He said no one should hesitate to call if they need a ride.
“It feels really good to be helping out this way,” he said. “I hope that people aren't hesitant to call.”
Pettitt said the busiest time for Tipsy Tow calls is between 1 and 4 a.m., around when bars are closing and holiday parties are ending.
“Everyone who calls just wants to get towed home, and they don't want to risk it,” he said. “Last year was definitely the highest call volume that I've ever seen.”
