AAA Digest of Motor Laws Now Available Free Online
New online feature provides easy access to driving laws and regulations for all 50 states
Tampa, Fla., (July 20, 2011) – Police, DMV officials and drivers have looked to AAA’s Digest of Motor Laws for eight decades to easily locate information on traffic laws, vehicle registration and driver licensing across all 50 states. This resource is now available free to the public at DrivingLaws.AAA.com, a new online feature that presents the content as an easy-to-use online resource.
“This new online resource helps drivers and others navigate the complex patchwork of state motor vehicle laws, putting a wealth of information about traffic laws, licensing policies, and vehicle regulations just a click away,” said Kevin Bakewell, sr. vice president, AAA Auto Club South. “Many websites simply link back to state DMV sites or focus separately on traffic safety laws, vehicle regulations, or driver licensing. DrivingLaws.AAA.com is a single, user-friendly clearinghouse for information from across the full spectrum of rules that impact motorists.”
While the former print version of the book was published annually, the new format will be updated throughout the year as states make changes to their laws and regulations. The online Digest covers all 50 states and Washington, D.C., and will expand to include Puerto Rico and Canada’s provinces and territories later this year.
Other topics featured include state graduated driver’s licensing systems, child safety seat and seat belt laws, licensing for senior drivers, distracted driving laws, titling and registration, safety and emissions inspections, motorcycles and mopeds, auto insurance requirements, passenger car towing, and Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) fees and taxes.
As North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 52 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services. Since its founding in 1902, the not-for-profit, fully tax-paying AAA has been a leader and advocate for the safety and security of all travelers. AAA clubs can be visited on the Internet at AAA.com.
