Area Towing Company To Provide Free Towing New Years Eve

It's just not worth the price to drink and drive, and if you happen to drink too much this new year's eve, you don't have to drive to get you and your car home.

An East Texas towing company is offering to tow your vehicle for free if you feel you are too drunk to drive. Atkinson Towing and Recovery will begin offering the service, called "Arrive Alive, Don't Drink and Drive", New Years Eve night at six o'clock, and it will continue until six a-m on New Years Day. They say they do it because they have seen the results of what happens when people drive drunk.

Last year, they towed about nine cars during the night of new years eve. The service is free and it's confidential. Instead of payment, they are requesting, but not requiring, that those who use the service make a donation to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

If you would like to take advantage of this program, you can call Atkinson Towing and Recovery in Lufkin at 632-8580. If you live in Polk county, you can call 327-8680. And again the free service will run from six p-m new year's eve to six a-m new years day.
