AAA Urges Motorists To Celebrate The Holidays Safely

GEORGIANS CAN CALL (855) 2-TOW-2-GO FOR A SAFE RIDE HOME

NEWS RELEASE

ATLANTA, Ga. (December 31, 2019) — New Years is the deadliest holiday on U.S. roadways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2017, nearly 1,000 people were killed during the 3-day period. Thirty-one percent of those deaths involved drunk drivers.

“There is no such thing as a responsible impaired driver, said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA-The Auto Club Group. “Impaired driving fatalities can be prevented by planning ahead and choosing a sober ride home, such as a designated driver. Drivers who get behind the wheel while intoxicated risk both their life and the lives of other motorists on the road.”

Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and Midwest. The service enables AAA and Budweiser to remind the public to plan ahead when celebrating with alcohol.
