Be ready to be careful this weekend.

Not to sound like an annoying PSA, but you do actually need to have a DD in your group when you go out this weekend. Either get a friend that doesn't drink much or rotate off who's turn it is to drive the crew. Or call an Uber if you're really that blitzed and no one with you is sober.

Those are your best options. But there is a last resort for Iowans if you just can't make any of those happen.



If you have the presence of mind to know that you should not drive, AAA will be offering Iowans "Tow-To-Go" this St. Patrick's Day weekend.

The free service is available from 6:00 p.m. on Friday, March 15th-6:00 a.m. on Monday, March 18th. You don't have to be an AAA member to take advantage of it.

Here's how it works: whenever you call Tow-To-Go, AAA sends a tow truck to help your drunk self and take you and the car to a safe place that's within a 10-mile radius. If your home isn't within 10 miles, then you better figure something out.

But, again: AAA asks that this be your last resort. 

AAA says that the program has kept over 30,000 drunk drivers off the road.

Iowa is one of the few states that the service is available in. Not surprisingly, St. Patrick's Day is one of the deadliest holidays on the roads in the U.S. If you need Tow-To-Go this weekend, their number is (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.
