      AAA and Bud Light will offer the Tow to Go program for Cinco de Mayo weekend. The program is designed to discourage an intoxicaqted driver from getting behind the wheel. Anyone, AAA member or not, can call for a Tow to Go ride, May 4-5.

      Almost three in ten consumers (29%) reported that they needed assistance from a designated driver in the past year, shows AAA Consumer Pulseâ"¢ Survey.

      "If you plan to celebrate this holiday weekend, we strongly suggest that you have a plan for a designated driver before you have your first drink," said Gerry Gutowski, Sr. Vice President, Automotive Services, The Auto Club Group.

      "The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of designated drivers and help prevent drunk driving," said Kathy Casso, vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. "We're pleased to partner with AAA and their roadside assistance drivers to help keep our roads safe."

      Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 22,000 intoxicated drivers from the roads. The service is designed to be used as a last resort. It is offered based on availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume. The Auto Club Group has provided the Tow to Go service for more than 15 years because it allows AAA to protect the freedom and mobility of motorists on our roadways.

      Tow to Go Services:

      Confidential local ride within a 10-mile radius to a safe location

      Service is provided in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee

      Free and available to both AAA members and non-members

      The AAA service vehicle takes the driver and their car home.
