Holiday Safe Ride Program

Availability for New Year’s Eve 2013

 

Heather HunterAs millions of Americans prepare to celebrate the holidays with loved ones, AAA reminds motorists to take the following safety precautions as the holiday season kicks off: drive only while drug and alcohol-free, select a designated driver for the evening, plan to take a cab or stay with a friend.

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.

While not a nationwide program, a number of AAA clubs offer safe ride services on select dates for members and nonmembers. This service is not available everywhere. AAA strongly encourages motorists to pick a designated driver before they head out for any holiday celebrations.

*Please note availability is subject to change without notice.

I think this is really generous to offer this to people even if they aren't members. Wonder why there's so much more coverage in the SW. Here's a bump for you.

Even if AAA doesn't offer it in your area, it's highly likely that the service is still offered through someone else! Just a tip for those who might need it.
