AAA Northern California is offering free tows to drivers who drink too much while celebrating Cinco de Mayo Thursday.

The free tow, which is valid within 10 miles of the driver's home, is offered between 6 p.m. this evening and 6 a.m. Friday. Drivers should call (800) AAA-HELP and tell the AAA operator "I need a tipsy tow."

Additional passengers will be taken to the driver's home as long as there is room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck, AAA Northern California spokeswoman Cynthia Harris said.

AAA is not accepting reservations for the free rides.
