Don't drink and drive.

We all understand what that means, and what the consequence may be if you choose to ignore that.

Some folks make the dumb decision to attempt to drive while impaired simply because they don't want to deal with the hassle of finding a ride or finding a way to get their vehicle to their house.

You can't use that for an excuse this New Year's Eve. 

Tipsy Tow is an effort sponsored by AAA to help ensure safer road ways on New Year's Eve.  And it's great news to report that locally, Al Meyer Ford has agreed to participate.

Here's how it works:

Between 6pm this Saturday to 6am this Sunday, if you feel you should not be behind the wheel, or know someone who is in that condition, call 1-800-222-4357, that's 1-800-AAA-HELP, and Al Meyer Ford in Lufkin will come to you and make sure that you and your vehicle are safely taken home...and this service is offered for FREE, and you do not have to be a member of AAA.
