Anyone who feels unsafe at the end of their St. Patrick’s Day celebration is urged to call AAA’s free Tipsy Tow service rather than getting behind the wheel.
In Rapid City, Tipsy Tow will give up to two riders and the caller’s vehicle a free ride home, no questions asked, beginning at noon on Saturday, March 17, until 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 18. The free ride will extend to a 15-mile radius of the pickup point.
Tipsy Tow is free to AAA members and nonmembers alike. Call 800-222-4357 and ask for Tipsy Tow.
“Every time we climb behind the wheel after drinking, we’re rolling the dice,” said AAA spokesperson Marilyn Buskohl. “Sometimes we tempt fate and get away with it, and sometimes we don’t. It’s our hope this St. Patty’s Day that more South Dakotans than ever will play it safe and call us for a Tipsy Tow.”
