Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 24,000 impaired
drivers from the roads. The service is designed to be used as a last resort. It is offered based on availability of AAA Service Technicians and tow trucks during times of high call volume.
- Tow trucks can take up to two people home; if there are more people in your party—you will need to make other arrangements to get home safely
- You can’t make an appointment to use the Tow to Go service, it is designed to be used as a last resort so have a designated driver before you have your first drink
- It may be necessary, in certain situations, for AAA to contact a cab company or local law enforcement to assist with getting the intoxicated individual a safe ride
Don't be shy. Call a friend or family member to drive you home.
Our goal with #SafeRidePasco is to ultimately decrease impaired driving. Here are a few ways you can help us reach our goal:
Always plan a back-up option, in case your ride plans need to change
Always plan a safe ride home BEFORE you leave your home
- If you plan to go out and enjoy a safe night without drugs- GREAT! Your work here is done!
- If drinking is involved in your plans, designate a sober driver. Remember, pills and other drugs impair one’s driving ability. Make sure your designated driver is sober of all drugs.
- Always plan a back-up option, in case yourride plans need to change
Discourage friends, families and strangers from driving home impaired
According to our data, most people in Pasco who received a DUI were not discouraged to drive. Help us change that! If you see someone who looks impaired, encourage them not to drive; help them make other arrangements to safely get to where they are going.
Help make our roads safer. If you see an impaired driver on the road, don’t hesitate to call the Pasco Sheriff’s Office at (727) 847-5878
