The AAA Exchange was designed to foster communication between AAA and the 59 million members it represents. It is an extension of AAA’s long history of public service and provides a look into important safety, consumer, automotive and travel issues.
AAA National Newsroom
The AAA National Newsroom provides information on AAA at a national level and provides information on programs and initiatives supported nationwide.
AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is dedicated to saving lives and reducing injuries on the roads. It is a not-for-profit, publicly-supported charitable educational and research organization. Since 1947, the Foundation has funded over 200 projects designed to discover the causes of traffic crashes, prevent them, and minimize injuries when they do occur. We have used this research to develop dozens of focused, high-impact educational materials for drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists and other road users.
AAA Gas Price Report
AAA’s Daily Gas Price Report offers the most comprehensive database of national, state, and metro price averages for gasoline, diesel, and E85 averages. The database is updated everyday by the Oil Price Information Service (OPIS) and reflects actual prices from credit card transactions within the past 24 hours at two-thirds (100,000) gasoline stations in the U.S.
AAA’s Gas Cost Calculator
AAA Fuel Cost Calculator estimates the amount and cost of gasoline needed to complete a vacation trip. Although the total number of miles driven and prices paid for gasoline during your trip may vary from the estimates provided, the AAA Gas Cost Calculator is intended to help you determine the cost of fuel needed to complete a vacation drive.
Traffic Safety Programs
AAA School Safety Patrol
For more than 85 years, AAA has supported the AAA School Safety Patrol Program, which instills students with a sense of responsibility and leadership. The AAA School Safety Patrol Program is the largest safety program in the world with more than 500,000 children participating at 50,000 schools throughout the country. To continue the program’s success, AAA makes available to participating schools the tools required to train their patrols, keep them safe, and recognize their achievements.
Teen Driver Safety
Involved in teen driver safety for 75 years, AAA has a full range of tools to help parents and teens throughout the whole learning-to-drive process. Keys2Drive provides parents an easy way to work with their teens through each step, from choosing a driver education program to deciding when solo driving is permitted.
Child Passenger Safety
In 2002, AAA launched a campaign called Seated, Safe and Secure, to raise awareness of child passenger safety (CPS) and strengthen occupant protection laws for everyone under the age of 18. AAA believes that closing the loopholes in existing state laws and educating the public about the proper use of safety seats and restraints for all children are essential to preventing child passenger injuries and deaths. Studies have shown that neither of these "fixes," when used independently of the other is as successful as a combination of the two.
Auto Club Group Legislative Advocacy
AAA Auto Club South works for motorists and other travelers in the legislature and in regulatory agencies to help protect them against unduly restrictive legislation and regulations. AAA is in the forefront of the movement for adequate roads and the safe use of those roads, fights for equitable taxation, and keeps a constant watch over the rights and prerogatives of America’s travelers.
