AAA has activated its "Tow to Go" fan for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, aiming to keep impaired drivers off the road.

The Auto Club Group program provides transportation for would-be impaired drivers and their vehicles for more than two decades.

According to AAA, the program will begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday and last through 6 a.m. Monday and is available in Michigan.

However, AAA reminds drivers that it should be used as a last resort.

So, how does it work? When someone calls Tow to Go, AAA dispatches a tow truck to transport the would-be driver and their vehicle to a safe location within a 10-mile radius.

“AAA is proud to offer this service to help everyone make it home safely this Thanksgiving,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Alcohol, drugs and even prescription medications can affect your ability to drive. So don’t put yourself at risk. Find a designated driver or ridesharing program. If you’re tempted to drive impaired, call AAA instead and we’ll get you to a safe location.”
