Tipsy driver programs for St. Patrick's Day

There will be several options for drivers to get safe rides home on St. Patrick's Day.

Make this St. Patrick's Day more about St. Paddy and less about the paddy wagon. If you've been drinking on St. Patrick's Day, AAA Northern California will take you and your car home for free.

AAA's Tipsy Tow program is open to everyone. You do not need to be a AAA member to take advantage of this service to the community. AAA will offer the service to drinking drivers from 6 p.m. on St. Patrick's Day, March 17th to 6 a.m. March 18th in Northern California, Nevada and Utah. Drivers, potential passengers, party hosts, bartenders, and restaurant managers can call 800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP) for a free tow home of up to five miles. Just tell the AAA operator, "I need a Tipsy Tow," and a truck will be on its way.

The service will provide a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver's home. If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver's home as long as there is sufficient room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck. You cannot make a reservation.
