Automobile Club of Southern California is offering their annual free Tipsy Tow service to help prevent drunk drivers from getting behind-the-wheel.

This free community service will start July 4 at 6 p.m. through July 5 at 6 a.m. If you need to use the service, call 1-800-400-4AAA to receive a free tow and ride home. AAA membership is not required.

To avoid DUI arrests, keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Designate a driver
  • Call a friend or family member for a ride home
  • Create a back-up plan to spend the night
  • Take away car keys from friends or family members who have been drinking

According to California Highway Patrol, during the July 4 holiday there were 271 impaired driving fatalities and injuries in 2015.

The Torrance Police Department are urging people to create a plan before heading out. Torrance Police Department’s DUI enforcement team will be out during the holiday patrolling areas that have had a  high frequency of DUI collisions and arrests.
