January 2, 2018 – Thirty-five Oklahomans took advantage of AAA’s free Tipsy Tow service over the New Year’s holiday weekend, wrapping up at 4 a.m. today. AAA believes it’s no coincidence that zero lives were lost on state highways New Year’s Eve (as reported by Oklahoma Highway Patrol.) This hasn’t occurred since 2007 (according to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.)
“AAA’s goal was to urge everyone to have a plan for safe celebrating and provide the Tipsy Tow safety net if those plans didn’t work out,” said Leslie Gamble, AAA spokesperson. “It’s great to know that that our friends and family survived their holiday travels on what is consistently the year’s deadliest day.”
2017 marked Tipsy Tow’s 28th year of availability to Oklahomans. “We greatly appreciate AAA automotive technicians who take on this additional role during the holidays as a labor of love for their fellow Oklahomans,” Gamble said.
AAA cautions drivers that throughout the year 35 percent of all crashes in Oklahoma are alcohol-related. “Don’t let your guard down no matter what day it is,” Gamble said. “Make sure if you are drinking, you have a plan to get home that doesn’t involve the risk of getting a DUI or putting lives in jeopardy.”
