DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - There's a free way for you to get home if you drink to much alcohol this Fourth of July.

The free tipsy tow service from AAA Texas is available statewide from 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 4th through 6 a.m. on Friday, July 5th.

AAA Texas spokesperson Daniel Armbruster says the free tow home is up to 10 miles.

Armbruster says, "Impaired driving is such a big problem in Texas. In fact, the latest statistics from 2017 show that 20 people were killed in alcohol related crashes just during that holiday period of Independence Day. That five day period."

He says for the overall year there were 1,024 people killed in crashes where a driver was under the influence of alcohol. 

The Tipsy Tow Service number is 1 800 222 4357.
