My small town has mostly dirt roads, will AAA still provide towing coverage to me?

Will AAA cover tows for my area if we only have dirt roads? My AAA agent said that the membership package doesn't cover tows for vehicles that are "off-roading". I live in a small town and we don't have a single paved road here. All of our roads are dirt and gravel.

“Great question!
When AAA refers to off-roading, they are mostly concerned with drivers intentionally going off-road and putting themselves and the tow truck drivers in dangerous situations.
Even if it is a gravel or dirt road, as long as it has a name or a state number, it is considered a road and you will be covered.
If you have to push your car off the road to safety or your vehicle skids off the road, you would be covered for that as well.
