Holiday Safe Ride Program

Availability for Christmas and New Year’s Eve

AAA

This holiday season, AAA reminds motorists to travel safely and drive drug- and alcohol-free when hitting the roads. For those who do plan to drink, AAA urges them to take safety precautions in advance: designate a non-drinking driver, call a cab or stay with a friend.

A number of AAA clubs offer safe ride services on select dates for members and nonmembers. This service is not available everywhere. * AAA strongly recommends selecting a designated driver before heading out for any holiday celebrations.

AAA works year-round to educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving in an effort to reduce traffic-related crashes and injuries. PreventDUI.AAA.com is an online resource offering facts about impaired driving, transportation alternatives and expert advice. AAA encourages all motorists to Take the Pledge to drive drug- and alcohol-free.
