AAA Roadway Safety

Roadway Safety

In 2010, almost 33,000 Americans died in over 5.4 million police-reported motor vehicle crashes, according to NHTSA. That averages out to crashes causing the deaths of 90 people each day, one every 16 minutes.

For more than a century, AAA has been working to improve roadway safety through providing educational materials and programs to members and the public, as well as by working with local, state and federal government officials and agencies such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regarding safety rules and guidelines.
