HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - AAA Alabama is offering Tow-for-Life which provides free towing services to keep impaired drivers off the road for New Year’s Eve.

AAA Alabama is cautioning partygoers against getting behind the wheel after the champagne toast. According to a recent analysis conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, during the last decade, the years’ highest number of alcohol-related traffic fatalities occur on New Year’s Day.

To save lives and promote safe driving this New Year’s Eve, AAA Alabama and wrecker services across the state will offer Tow-for-Life.

“This is the most dangerous time of year to be on the roads,” says Clay Ingram, AAA Alabama spokesperson. “We want to raise awareness and encourage people to plan ahead when going out on New Year’s Eve. It is important to make arrangements before you go out, so that you aren’t making these decisions after you have been drinking. We want help keep impaired drivers off the roads, so if you or someone you know has too much to drink on New Year’s Eve, just call 1-800-AAA-HELP and we’ll help get you home safely.”

This is the 33rd year for the program, and the service is provided to AAA members and non-members alike. The program begins at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 31 and continues until 6:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day.
