    AAA is offering free "Tipsy Tow" services to celebrants this Monday for the Memorial Day holiday.

    The service will run from 6 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday and is available to anyone, not just AAA members.

    "If your plans involve alcohol, plan ahead for a safe ride home," AAA Northern California spokesman Mike Blasky said in a statement. "If those plans fall through, please don't get behind the wheel. Call AAA and we'll get you home safely."

    Drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and restaurant managers can call (800) AAA-HELP (222-4357) and provide the driver's name, home address, phone number and their pick-up location.

    AAA will send out a tow truck and give the driver, the driver's vehicle and one passenger a free 10-mile tow and ride home. For distances beyond 10 miles, a standard towing rate will apply.
