Can I drive car with "Low Coolant" light on?

(1999 Buick Century)
in Harbor Springs, MI on October 26, 2012
Lite comes on after driving 1/4 mile. Now I'm afraid to drive it. 1) can I drive as is for about 3 miles to mechanic?
2) OR should I just have it towed to mechanic?
3) OR should I have tow truck fill it with antifreeze &
then drive it to mechanic myself? Thanks for help.

be safe, cause overheat = blown head gasket = big $$$
fill your coolant reservior up before driving...and pull over if it comes on and refill again.
