Grand Rapids, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A Grand Rapids tow truck company is hoping to reduce drunk driving in Itasca County by offering to take you and your car home after a night of drinking.

TJ Towing teamed up with the Itasca County Toward Zero Deaths program to offer reduced tow rates for anyone who has been drinking and needs a lift.

The Sober Tow will bring you and your car home up to a 15 miles outside city limits.

TJ Towing owner, Todd Figgins, says it's one more option to give people so they don't drink and drive.

"The main thing was just to give everybody as many options as possible to get home from the bar safely," said Figgins.

You can call for a Sober Tow at (218) 326-1097.
