No, I’m not a AAA customer, and no I’m not a drinker, but I do have to say that AAA and Budweiser have gotten together to do a good thing on St. Patrick’s Day here in Savannah.
It seems they have teamed up and implemented a program called Tow to Go. The gist of the program is that if you are partying downtown for St. Patrick’s Day and you happen to be drinking, you can call for a free ride home– and they’ll tow your car home as well.
That. Is. Excellent.
Now, if the city could somehow increase the penalty for drunk driving for the period extending 24 hours in either direction of St. Patrick’s Day, I would be even more pleased. I’m thinking a mandatory 30-day impound, a fine equal to 10 times your annual vehicle registration, and about 2,000 hours of community service.
It’s time we put an end to drunk driving, and it’s time that drunk drivers are severely punished.
That is all.
