The organization is projecting that nearly 1.5 million Georgians will travel for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“AAA is proud to bring back this life-saving program this Thanksgiving,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman for AAA-The Auto Club Group.

“Now as millions of Americans get behind the wheel this weekend, none of them will have an excuse for driving impaired,” Waiters said. “However, we still strongly encourage people to identify a safe ride home and treat Tow to Go as their last resort.”

Motorists can reach the service by calling (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.
