AAA Hawaii is urging the public to be responsible this Fourth of July holiday.
The company says its Tipsy Tow will be available as a last resort during the holiday.
Tipsy Tow provides a driver with a safe ride home for themselves and their vehicle instead of driving while intoxicated.
The free service will be available from 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 3, until midnight Thursday, July 4.
Tipsy Tow is available in the areas served by AAA Hawaii, however, Tipsy Tow is not offered by all AAA clubs.
Motorists, bartenders, restaurant managers, party hosts or passengers of a drinking driver may call 1-800-222-4357 for a free tow home of up to five miles. Callers can tell the AAA operators, “I need a Tipsy Tow,” to receive the free tow and ride home.
A regular AAA Hawaii-contracted emergency road service truck will be dispatched.
Callers should keep in mind that the service excludes rides for passengers, is restricted to a one-way, one-time ride for the driver and the destination is limited to the driver’s residence. Reservations are not accepted.
Drivers can expect to pay the rate charged by the tow truck contractor for rides farther than five miles.
