To make sure people get home safely this Super Bowl Sunday Northern California AAA is offering its Tipsy Tow service for those who may have a little too much to drink.

Not just for existing AAA members, anyone can call AAA at 1-(800) AAA-HELP and say they need a Tipsy Tow. They will get a free ride home and their vehicle will be towed up to 10 miles. A standard rate will be charged for any towing beyond the 10 miles. AAA will only take them to their home or hotel. Not another place to drink or to a repair facility.

In a statement, Northern California AAA spokesman Michael Blasky says "AAA wants motorists to plan ahead for a safe ride home if they are planning on attending a Super Bowl party where alcohol is involved...We encourage drivers, passengers, party hosts and restaurant managers to take advantage of our service, as driving while intoxicated is never a winning play.” 

AAA estimates that a first-time DUI conviction can cost you more than $10,000 in fines.

Tipsy Tow runs from 6:00 pm on Sunday February 3rd to 6:00 am Monday February 4th.
