AAA's Tipsy Tow program will take drivers who have had to much to drink home for free on the Fourth of July.

AAA’s Tipsy Tow service will start at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4, and will run through 6 a.m. Wednesday, July 5. Nevada drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and/or restaurant managers should:

•    Call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357)
•    State that they need a “Tipsy Tow.”
•    Provide the driver’s name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.

AAA isn't the only agency advocating for safe roads this week. In Las Vegas, residents and visitors were given $10,000 worth of free ride Lyft credits to encourage passengers to celebrate responsibly.

From 12 a.m. on July 1 through 8 a.m. on July 5, new and existing Las Vegas Lyft users will receive up to 42 percent off a ride by using code “ZEROLV".
