32 Million Expected to Hit The Road
Triple AAA travel experts say up to 32 million people are expected to travel away from home for Memorial Day weekend. Gas prices continue to be low and the weather looks like it will cooperate. Despite some fears about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Garrett Townsend of Triple A South tells us that many travelers still have their sights set on Florida beaches.
and the beach properties are trying to give as much information about their condition as possible.
AAA Auto Club South and Budweiser will also help protect roadways over the Memorial Day weekend with the Tow to Go program. Tow to Go is credited with safely removing more than 11,400 drunk drivers off the roads since it started in 1998. Anyone can call for a ‘Tow to Go’ ride Friday through Monday, May 28 – 31.
‘Tow to Go’ provides a confidential ride and tow home from any bar or restaurant – FREE of charge – to anyone who may have had too much to drink by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP (4357). Services are now offered throughout all of Florida, Georgia, and West and Middle Tennessee.
