The holidays usually coincide with massive quantities of booze. How else are you gonna be able to put up with your Uncle Rick’s pull my finger jokes? Some people enjoy looking for the “Christmas spirit” in the bottom of a bottle. If you are one of those people and you find yourself having to make the choice of drinking and driving or getting home alive. Get your drunk ass and your car a ride home for free.

Operation Tipsy Tow will give free rides to “tipsy” people and their cars from Dec. 16 through Jan. 1. Red’s Towing will offer a free and confidential tow to people who need to be picked up inside city limits and are within 10 miles of their destination. For a ride, call 1-800-AAA-HELP, or 222-4357.

Now keep in mind that Red’s towing usually has 3 or 4 drivers on duty on at any time. So as long as it isn’t a busy Friday night, you should get your ride home between 30-45 minutes. If it is busy out, call ahead, before bar time. Having to wait a little in the cold sure as hell beats dying in a wreck or getting a felony, and at least you have the piece of mind that your car is home safe too.
