LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –If you decide to drink this weekend at a Super Bowl party and need a safe way to get home, call Tipsy Tow.

“The Super Bowl is one of the biggest national sporting events,” said Chuck Mai, AAA Oklahoma spokesman. “But drinking and driving is not a game—it’s a deadly and criminal combination, so make the right play.”

AAA is offering their Tipsy Tow service once again to make sure party goers get home safely, and it’s free. They also want to remind everyone about the ABCs of hosting a party.

A-Alcohol Awareness
Guests should have a designated driver for the evening. A car key collection can help ensure guests are sober before they leave for the evening.

B-Buffet
Foods that are high in protein, such as meats and cheeses, stay in the stomach longer and slow down the rate of intoxication; starchy foods are great as well. Salt should be minimized, because it makes people thirsty and can seed up intoxication. Non-alcoholic drink choices should also be an option.

C-Carpool
Only time will make guests sober. AAA says it takes about an hour to burn off the average drink; five ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer or 1.5 ounces of liquor. Be a friend first and a host second. Carpooling is a great way to make sure everyone gets home, but only if the driver is sober.

AAA’s Tipsy Tow is completely free, for members and non-members alike. Callers in the OKC metro, Tulsa metro, Ardmore, Lawton, Enid, Bartlesville, Tahlequah, Muskogee and Shawnee can make use of Tipsy Tow from 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7, until 4 a.m. Monday, Feb. 8. Just call 800-222-4357 and ask for Tipsy Tow.

If you have to drink, don’t drive. If you have to drive, don’t drink.
