PHOENIX (AP) -- Two groups will again offer a program for people who drink but don't want to drive over the holiday weekend.

The so-called Tipsy Tow service offers drivers a free ride home, along with a free tow for their car for up to 10 miles.

For trips longer than 10 miles, drivers will have to be the towing company's standard rate.

Drivers will not be taken to another drinking establishment or anywhere else but home.

The service will be offered on Sunday night starting at 6 p.m. and will be available until 6 a.m. the following day.

AAA Arizona and a group called the Beverage Alcohol Community Information Council are providing the service.

Anyone interested can call 1-800-AAA-Help.
