Five Jay Automotive offers free towing in effort to limit NYE drunk driving

Posted: Updated:

Five Jay Automotive offered free towing services Monday night so drivers would have no excuse to get behind the wheel drunk.

The services run until 6 a.m. New Year's Day.

The initiative started after the company's workers towed mangled cars out of drunk driving crashes.

New York state also has the "Have a Plan Mobile App" that helps connect drivers to taxi services and the option to program a designated driver list.

Anyone who wants to use Five Jay Automotive can call 718-792-0300.
