Smashed On New Year's Eve? AAA Will 'Tipsy Tow' You And Your Car Home For Free
Just call AAA's "Tipsy Tow" hotline at (800) 400-4AAA for a free ride for you and your car. Some fine print (to read while you're sober):
- Rides are for the drivers of the vehicles only. Your passengers will have to call their own cabs--or ride the free bus (see below).
- The "free" part is only good for up to seven miles. For longer distances, you must pay the normal towing rate.
- The service runs from 6 p.m. Dec. 31 to 6 a.m. the next morning.
Another option for those hammered in 2011: the good 'ol bus.
The Orange County Transportation Authority is offering free bus rides on New Year's Eve starting at 6:00 p.m. and ending at 2:30 a.m. the next morning. For bus routes and schedules, call 714-636-7433 or visit www.octa.net.
Be safe, folks.
