AAA extends ‘Tipsy Tow’ for 4/20 Tonight, Beginning at 4:20 p.m. First time Tipsy Tow for the Cannabis Holiday

Walnut Creek, CA...Marijuana might be legal in your state, but AAA knows that cars and cannabis—just like alcohol—can be a dangerous combination. That’s why AAA is offering its popular ‘Tipsy Tow’ service for the first 4/20 with legal recreational marijuana. There’s never an excuse to not plan for a safe ride home, but if those plans fall through, AAA will get you and your car home safely. AAA Tipsy Tow service across Northern California will start 4:20 p.m. on Friday, April 20, and continue until 4:20 a.m. April 21.





AAA has provided free Tipsy Tow service for events and holidays such as St. Patrick’s Day, the Super Bowl and New Year’s Eve since the 1990s, but this is the first campaign involving marijuana. Dispensaries in California began selling legal recreational marijuana on Jan. 1. The service is not offered in Southern California.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re drinking alcohol or using recreational marijuana, there’s never an excuse to drive impaired,” said John Moreno, public policy manager for AAA Northern California and six other Western states. “You should always plan for a safe ride home, but if those plans fall through, AAA will get you and your vehicle home safely on 4/20. We want to keep intoxicated drivers off our roadways, which keeps all of us safer.”

To take advantage of the service, drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and/or restaurant managers should call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) and state that they need a Tipsy Tow. Drivers should be prepared to provide their name, home address, phone number, location and vehicle description.

Tipsy Tow provides a free ride home and vehicle tow of up to 10 miles. For mileage beyond this, motorists are charged a standard towing rate. The service does not include roadside assistance. You do not have to be a AAA member to use the service.

AAA estimates that a first-time DUI conviction can cost a motorist more than $10,000 in fines, penalties, legal fees and increased insurance costs.

AAA Northern California offers a wide array of automotive, travel, insurance, DMV, financial services and consumer discounts to its 4 million members. AAA has been a leader and advocate for the safety and security of all travelers since it was founded more than 117 years ago. Visit AAA.com for more information.

Maybe those boy's will grow up someday, I would, as a parent, be totally embarrassed if one of those we're mine! So many of America's youth have been sold the conta that pot is a good idea, let alone alcohol or any other mind altering drug! I would have loved to sit outside Golden Gate Park today, a simple question, Do you have a job? If so what are your goals for life? 2 questions, but what the heck!

    You are obviously a good person showing a sympathetic heart. But look at the post kicking you square in your heart. Do not loose your kind heart, but save it for family and friends an people truly deserving of it.

    You do understand this is simply a posed stock photo, don’t you? It could be of growing, hungry teenage boys anywhere but regular stoners? I think not. The editor is having a bit of fun generalizing about the munchies is all.

          The dawn of George H. W. Bush’s career in elective politics in 1962 introduced Barbara Bush to the
          campaign trail that she would relentlessly tread for the next 54 years on behalf of her husband, her friends
          and political allies, and her family. The family moved to Washington, DC in late 1966 following Mr.
          Bush’s election to the U.S. House from Texas’ seventh congressional district; and to New York and the
          Waldorf Hotel in 1971 following his appointment by President Nixon as Ambassador to the United
          Nations.
