It is officially Thanksgiving Eve, also considered one of the biggest bar nights of the year.

There's a program called "Tow To Go" to help prevent drivers under the influence from hitting the road. 

The program is a collaboration between AAA and Budweiser.

If you're out somewhere and make the smart decision to get a ride home, your car won't be far behind you.

All you have to do is call 1-855-2-TOW-2-GO.

The AAA tow truck will take you and your car somewhere within 10 miles.

This program runs through Sunday, then picks up again for Christmas, New Year's Eve and Super Bowl Sunday. 

Troy police are  warning drunk drivers that they are not going to like sitting behind bars while everyone else is feasting.

Michigan State Police are among many other departments that will have extra patrols on the road to keep our streets safe.
