If you're going to be drinking for the holiday, make arrangements to get home.

AAA Arizona's Tipsy Tow service can help get you home on New Year's Eve night if you've been drinking. As little as one drink can impair vision, steering, braking, judgment, and reaction time. You can't put a price tag on a crash that causes an injury or death.

"New Year's Eve is the busiest night of the year for Tow to Go, but it doesn't have to be", said Amy Stracke, Managing Director, Traffic Safety Advocacy for AAA - The Auto Club Group and Executive Director of the ACG Traffic Safety Foundation.

"Just because a doctor prescribes a drug, or you can purchase it over-the-counter doesn't necessarily mean it is safe to use while driving", says Rolayne Fairclough, AAA Utah spokesperson.

AAA Utah offers a wide array of automotive, travel, insurance, DMV, financial services and consumer discounts to more than 183,000 members.
