While many Oklahomans will be celebrating the Irish this weekend on St. Patrick's Day, officials are warning drivers to not drink before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle.

"The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of designated drivers and help prevent impaired driving", said vice-president of corporate social responsibility for Anheuser-Busch Katja Zastrow.

"Our Tow to Go program is available for anybody".

According to AAA, 269 people died in drunken-driving crashes on St. Patrick's Day from 2012 to 2016.

Protecting against drunk driving is the focus to get everyone home safe and sound.

The program is available to AAA members and non-members in Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota, Nebraska, Tennessee, Wisconsin and parts of Indiana.

AAA is offering free Tipsy Tow rides to anyone who has overindulged during the weekend. So, we want people just to plan ahead.

Troopers said they're ramping up patrols, looking for impaired, and distracted drivers to get you home safe. "Make sure they have a plan to get home safe at the end of the night, and for those that don't, that find themselves in that situation where they don't have a sober way home, Tow To Go is there as a safety net". "We're going to be looking for individuals that are being distracted while driving on their cell phones", said Corporal Andrew McKenzie, Albany GSP Post 40.

The number to call is 855- 2 TOW 2 GO.
