AAA's "Tipsy Tow" initiative will be offering New Year's Eve partygoers a free ride home tonight in the hope of getting people home safely on one of the biggest party nights of the year.

Anyone who has seen in the 2014 New Year with a little too much to drink will be able to catch a free ride with Tipsy Tow rather than risking more dangerous ways to get home. All the details for this New Year 2014 Tipsy Tow program can be found below, including a AA map of the regions it is offered.

The AAA's Tipsy Tow program is officially known as its Holiday Safe Ride Program, and is also known as "Tow-to-Go" or "Tow-for-Life." Depending on which region you are in, the Tipsy Tow program will offer members and even non-members a free ride home safely.

At the moment the Tipsy Tow program is not rolled out completely nationwide, but is limited to certain states and regions.

The AAA has described the program stating, "As millions of Americans celebrate holidays and events this year, it is important to remember the safety precautions drivers should take during any festivities.

"Drive only while drug and alcohol-free, pick a designated driver for the evening, plan to take a cab or stay with a friend."

It adds, "While not a nationwide program, a number of AAA clubs offer Tow-to-Go or Tipsy Tow service during certain holidays for members and nonmembers. This service is not available everywhere. Better yet - encourage family and friends to pick a designated driver before they head out for the night."
