AAA Traffic Safety programs play an important role in the communities we serve, protecting and saving lives of drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians of all ages.
Age alone should not determine when someone stops driving, and AAA is committed to keeping seniors driving as long as safely possible.
AAA offers a variety of workshops, tools, information and other resources to help teens drive safely.
