The initiative, called “Tow Drunk to Drive,” will run from Nov. 23 through Jan. 1. Day or night, residents can contact the Chelmsford Police Department or Christopher’s Towing Company, which will dispatch a truck to provide a free tow and ride to anywhere in the Merrimack Valley. Police would like to note that cars must be operable and residents will be taken home, not to another party or establishment.

The Chelmsford Police Athletic League will donate $20 to a worthy cause for every person who utilizes the “Tow Drunk to Drive” program.

“We at the Chelmsford Police Department would like to take a proactive step during this holiday season by offering residents a safe and convenient way to get home if they have been drinking,” Chief Spinney said. “We have zero tolerance for those who get behind the wheel while intoxicated, and hope to cut down on alcohol-related accidents and injuries while also giving back to the community through donations.”

For a free ride and tow for yourself or a friend, call Christopher’s Towing at 978-452-7433 or the Chelmsford Police Department at 978-256-2521.
