As a Peachtree City personal injury lawyer who represents victims of drunk driving accidents, I am always concerned about the increased number of intoxicated motorists who can be expected on our roads and highways during the holiday season. As we head into Christmas and New Year's, drunk driving increases dramatically and so do auto fatalities. It doesn't have to be like this. You can go to your Christmas parties and still get home safely, without risking your own life or the lives of others. A number of free ride facilities for intoxicated motorists are now available across Georgia, and I encourage their use.
For instance, an AAA Auto Club and Budweiser facility called "Tow To Go" offers free rides home to drunk drivers in Georgia. Tow to Go claims that it has kept 12,300 drunk motorists off the road over the years. According to the AAA Auto Club, the demand for their services increases exponentially during the holiday season. In fact, roughly 70% of their call volume comes during the holiday season.These facilities are free to use, and offer motorists a chance to get home safely at no cost. Using these services costs nothing. Not using this service could cost you everything. If you don't have a desinated driver, please use on the these free services. The life you save may be your own. In Georgia, these facilities are available through the 2nd of January.
