“Tipsy Tow”

166

Plan on paintin’ the town red this New Year’s Eve? Before you start drawing straws for designated driver, check this out. AAA of Southern California will be offering a “Tipsy Tow” service starting at 6 p.m. on December 31 and running until 6 a.m. January 1. If you and your automobile are stranded within 7 miles of home, you can call the “Tipsy Tow” hotline and AAA will tow you – and your car – back home for free. A little farther than 7 miles? They’ll still come get ya, you just need to pay normal towing expenses (cheaper than a DUI, right?).

Although the service is only offered for the driver and car, the rest of your gang can take advantage of Orange County Transportation Authority’s free bus ride offer. From 6 p.m. December 31 to 2:30 a.m. January 1, you can hop on an OCTA bus without charge – just make sure to check the participating schedules and routes.
