Tipsy Tow returns so you don't have to drink and drive on New Year's Eve

Partying and celebrating on New Year's Eve are good things to do. Driving after such activities, however, is not so good. However, if you find yourself drunk and needing a way to get back home, AAA is once again offering its Tipsy Tow service throughout the night.

Tipsy Tow is kind of cool. Whether or not you are a member of AAA, you can call them up and ask for a ride/tow to your home. The service is only available in some areas (check for the specifics on this) and only for a limited distance -- usually 7-10 miles -- but Tipsy Tow means that both you and your car can get home safely.

If you've had a little (or a lot) too much to drink and want to use Tipsy Tow, you just have to call 1-800-400-4222. They'll come to get you. Hours vary by region, but most Tipsy Tow services will pick you up at any time between 6pm on Dec. 31 and 6am on Jan. 1. A word of warning though: The driver will **not take you to another bar. That would defeat the purpose of all of this, after all.
