NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — AAA will be bringing back its Tow to Go program for the 25th year in a row for Memorial Day weekend.

AAA expects to rescue more than 480,000 drivers nationwide with car trouble over the three-day period.

Meanwhile, Tow to Go provides a free service to members and nonmembers to keep impaired drivers off the road.

“By providing this program, AAA gives drivers no excuse for driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol or impairing medications,” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman for AAA – The Auto Club Group. “However, we remind people to treat Tow to Go as a last resort. Instead, make advanced plans for a safe ride home, because you do not want to be remembered on Memorial Day as the person who made the fatal mistake of driving impaired.”
