AAA has a message for those who are heading out with friends this weekend or those who are planning a weekend getaway: Don’t Drink and Drive! Protect yourself, your loved ones, and other people on the road by designating a sober driver or by arranging another form of sober transportation. The Tampa personal injury attorneys of the Capaz Law Firm hope that you have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!
Free Tow Service in Tampa
AAA is partnering with Budweiser to offer a free “Tow-To-Go” service for the entire Memorial Day Weekend, starting Friday, May 27 through Tuesday, May 31 at 6:00 a.m. Regardless of whether you are a AAA member, you can call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246 for a free Tow-To-Go ride and tow service. AAA will transport two people and a vehicle to a safe location within a ten-mile radius. However, as a reminder, this service should only be used as a last resort.
