AAA works year-round to educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving in an effort to reduce traffic-related crashes and injuries. is an online resource offering facts about impaired driving, transportation alternatives and expert advice. AAA encourages all motorists to Take the Pledge to drive drug- and alcohol-free.
