Take the terror out of Halloween by not driving impaired
The scariest thing about Halloween may not be trick or treating in a costume, but driving a vehicle impaired.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an impaired driver was involved in almost half of the crash fatalities (44%) on Halloween night from 2012-2016. Halloween is also one of the top 3 days for pedestrian injuries and fatalities. To help keep impaired drivers off the road this Halloween, AAA, and Budweiser have teamed up to provide their Tow to Go program, a free service for both AAA members and non-members that provides safe rides home for those who did not plan ahead.
“For the safety of all those out on Halloween night, please don’t ever drive impaired,” said Matt Nasworthy, Florida Public Affairs Director, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Have a plan in place to get home safely before you ever have your first drink.”
Tow to Go services are available from Thursday, October 31st – Friday, November 1st at 6 am.
Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and Midwest. Visit AAA.com/TowToGo
