Tallahassee, Florida - The upcoming holiday weekend is one of the busiest of the year for AAA's Tow to Go program.

The program, co-sponsored by Bud Light, provides free rides to drivers who end up drinking too much at a party or bar.

Tow truck operators will drive callers to a safe location within a 10-mile radius.

Brenda Smith of AAA says the Tow to Go program has saved many lives since it started in 1998.

More than 20,000 people have taken advantage of the free ride over the past 14 years.

"It's confidential and we would dispatch a specific driver with the wrecker. The driver will take you home along with your vehicle so that we can keep you off the highway. It will keep you safe. It will also keep our other motorists safe," said Smith.

The number to call for the Tow to Go program is 1-855-2-TOW-2-GO or 855-286-9246.

Smith says calling that number should be your last resort. AAA encourages people to think first about getting a designated driver if they know they'll be drinking.
