Free Towing Offered For New Years Eve

Posted: Updated:

With thousands out tonight bringing in the New Year, there are safe options for you to remember if you find yourself having too much of a good time.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office is urging you to stay sober behind the wheel, but if you are drinking, News 13's has a few tips and resources to make sure you get home safely.

New Years is branded as a celebration, but it shouldn't be at the expense of your life or others.

Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and prevention indicate that one person is killed every 48 minutes in an alcohol related crash -- a total of more than 10,000 people annually.

If you have too much to drink, White's Gulf County Wrecker Service is offering towing free of charge.

They are in their 30th year of providing New Years towing. A simple phone call will get you and your car home, without you getting behind the wheel.

AAA is offering the same service.

White's Gulf County Wrecker Service Manager, Hassie White, said they're devoted to keeping New Years a safe celebration for all.

The number for White's Gulf County Wrecker Service is

850-215-8695.

They are offering their services to Bay, Walton, Gulf and Leon counties.

You must provide them with your address or general area when you call.

AAA is also offering free towing tonight. That number is:

(855) 2-Tow-2-Go or (855) 286-9246
