LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- If you have plans to go out to celebrate Halloween this weekend, AAA says it will be activating its Tow-To-Go program for those that have too much to drink.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says last year, more than half of all highway fatalities on Halloween involved an impaired driver.  Frightening statistics like that, combined with the increased pedestrian traffic from trick-or-treaters, will make for a deadly mix again this Halloween.

To avoid drinking and driving, you can use AAA's Tow-To-Go service.  It'll take you - and your car - anywhere within a 10-mile radius for free!

For more information just call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO.

The free service starts Friday, October 28th and ends at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, November 1st.
