AAA and Budweiser offer free towing and a ride for over-indulging drivers on New Year's Eve

Revelers ringing in the new year this weekend will have no excuse for not finding a safe way home.

AAA Auto Club South and Budweiser are teaming up to provide transportation for party-goers who've had too much to drink through a program called "Tow to Go."

The free service, available throughout Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, is intended as a last resort for those who haven't already made designated driver arrangements.

Through the weekend, AAA's network of drivers will be offering rides to anyone who has had too much to drink. When people call 1-800-AAA-HELP, a driver will show up and give them — and their vehicle — a ride home.

More than 10,000 people have used the service since it began 10 years ago, an AAA spokesperson said.
