AAA Encourages Making a plan for St. Patrick’s Day

Ginnie Pritchett(HEATHROW, March 12, 2013) As everyone searches for their luckiest leprechaun and makes plans to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, AAA strongly encourages arranging a safe ride home before they partake in any festivities.

AAA works year round to educate motorists about driving practices that will help keep them safe and reduce traffic-related crashes and the injuries that can result.  PreventDUI.AAA.com is an online resource offering impaired driving facts, transportation alternatives and expert advice.  Once there, AAA encourages visitors to Take the Pledge to drive drug and alcohol-free.

Additional Resources

While not a nationwide program, a number of AAA clubs offer Tow-to-Go or Tipsy Tow service on select dates for members and nonmembers. This service is not available everywhere. AAA strongly encourages family and friends to pick a designated driver before they head out on St. Patrick’s Day.
