February 1, 2017 – Whether you’re cheering for the “Cheesesteak”, “Chowder” or just watching the commercials, AAA Oklahoma urges you not to mix drinking and driving with Super Bowl parties. AAA’s life-saving Tipsy Tow service will be available on Super Bowl Sunday in nine cities across the state.

 

“With Super Bowl parties across Oklahoma, we’re running the blitz on DUIs,” said Leslie Gamble, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “It’s a big weekend for over indulgence, so if you – or others with you – are getting ready to drive and aren’t completely sober, call us. We’ll make sure you, up to one more person and your car all get home safely, no charge, no questions asked.”

 

Tipsy Tow starts at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4, and runs until 4 a.m., Monday, Feb. 5, in metro Tulsa, metro Oklahoma City, Ardmore, Tahlequah, Lawton, Bartlesville, Muskogee, Enid and Shawnee. Tipsy Tow is a free community service, open to AAA members and non-members alike. Call (800) 222-4357 (AAA HELP) and say, “I need a Tipsy Tow.” AAA will give you and your vehicle a ride home within a 15-mile radius of point of pickup.

 

“Most of all, everyone needs a game plan for Super Bowl partying,” said Gamble. “Choose a designated driver, call a ridesharing service or contact AAA so the roads will be safer for all of us.”

 

Party hosts are urged to offer creative mocktails, zero-proof beverages, to designated drivers and others minimizing their alcohol intake. Recipes and tips on how to throw a great party and prevent the tragedy of drunk-driving crashes when your guests leave are available at aaa.com/mocktails.

 

*Although Tipsy Tow is offered in Oklahoma for major holidays and special events, it is not a nationwide program.
