(Newser) – If you find yourself too buzzed to drive home while celebrating the new year, AAA can help. Its "Tow to Go" program (which has actually been around since 1998) offers free rides tonight and tomorrow, whether you're a member or not. The service is meant to help people with no other options, so you can't schedule a ride in advance, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. But if you find yourself in a bind, a tow truck will take your car and up to two people to a safe place within 10 miles of your location. For more information and to see whether the program is offered in your area, click here.

I have always wondered: If drinking and driving is illegal, why do bars have parking lots?

I am glad that this service is being offered. I would hope that nobody would get drunk since getting drunk is gravely sinful but since I know that there are going to be people getting drunk then I would hope that they would take advantage of this service. After all, driving drunk could end up killing someone at the worst or even wind you up in jail. And even if none of those things happen, you'll still (hopefully) have a guilty conscience for having done such a gravely sinful and irresponsible thing.
