WINSTON COUNTY - As Alabamians celebrate on the 4th of July, AAA Alabama cautions partygoers against getting behind the wheel after drinking.
To save lives and promote safe driving this holiday, AAA Alabama and wrecker services across the state will again offer Tow-for-Life. This public service program provides free towing services to keep impaired drivers off the road. This is the 33rd year for the program, and the service is provided to AAA members and non-members alike.
AAA does not condone drinking and driving and encourages all motorists to act responsibly to keep drunk drivers off the road throughout the holidays. The program begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 4, and continues until 6 a.m. on Friday, July 5.
To receive free towing July 4, call AAA Alabama at 1-800-222-4357 and ask for Tow-for-Life. The vehicle must be operable to qualify for a free tow. The operator will ask for the driver’s name, home address, telephone number and exact location of the vehicle and driver.
A tow truck will be dispatched and upon arrival the wrecker driver will ask for identification and the keys to the vehicle.
The vehicle will be towed to the home of the driver or owner if the owner is present.
Towing is provided at no charge up to 10 miles.
