It’s almost New Year’s Eve, and AAA has brought back their Tipsy Tow feature!

According to CBS SF Bay Area, the car assistance company is letting people get a free tow and ride home on the big night.

This is all to help people make safe choices and keep drunk drivers off the road.

While AAA will only tow the first 10 miles for free, that should be enough for most to get home. They’re also only charging the standard towing rate for any miles beyond 10.

The Tipsy Tow service will run from 6 p.m. New Year’s Eve until 6 a.m. the next morning. To access the service, just call (800) AAA-HELP and state you need a “tipsy tow.” They also encourage others, like party hosts and restaurant employees, to call if they feel someone else might need the service.

Another great thing?

You don’t even need to be a AAA member to use the service! Spokeman Michael Blasky explained in a statement:

“Be sure you have a plan to get home safely if you’re out celebrating this year. If that plan falls through, call AAA and we’ll get you home.”
