SIOUX FALLS (AP) - AAA South Dakota is offering a free ride home and tow service for drinking drivers over the Fourth of July holiday.

KSFY-TV reports the "Tipsy Tow" service is available from 6 p.m. Friday until 4 a.m. Tuesday. The program will be offered to AAA members and nonmembers in Sioux Falls, Rapid City, Mitchell and Yankton.

By calling 800-222-4357, AAA will provide a free tow of the person's vehicle and a free ride home for up to two people within a 15-mile radius from where the person is picked up.

AAA spokeswoman Marilyn Buskohl says the company developed the program to offer drinking drivers an alternative to getting behind the wheel and endangering themselves and others on the road.

The only place AAA will take the person is home.
