Too drunk to drive during Cinco de Mayo?...

[from a press release I received in one of my e-mail accounts]

...AAA will provide its first-ever Cinco de Mayo Tipsy Tow. Service will start 6 p.m. Saturday, May 5 and will run through 6 a.m. Sunday, May 6.

AAA urges party-goers to take the following steps to stay safe this Cinco de Mayo:

Designate a sober driver if you plan on drinking.

Don’t let your amigos drive impaired.

If you’re hosting a fiesta, serve food and alcohol-free drinks and ensure your guests have a safe way home.

Be aware of alternative options such as taxis, mass transit or Tipsy Tow.

Drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and/or restaurant managers in need of a Tipsy Tow can call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) between 6 p.m. May 5 and 6 a.m. May 6 and state that they need a Tipsy Tow. They will simply need to provide the driver’s name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.

Tipsy Tow provides a one-way ride for the driver, one passenger and their vehicle at no cost for up to 10 miles. Services will not be provided to motorists requesting a tow to...a destination other than their home. A tow to a hotel may be allowed if the motorists is, or plans to become, a guest.
