Travel with AAA
AAA and Some History
The AAA (commonly referred to as Triple A) and a more formal name known as the American Automobile Association was founded in 1902 in Cleveland, Ohio as an answer to lack of roads and highways suitable for automobiles.
Up until 1956, in the United States, AAA was an authorized organization for encouraging and supporting many auto races including the Indianapolis 500. In 1955, after the LeMans disaster, AAA decided that auto racing was distracting the organization from their primary goals and so it was that the United States Automobile Club was formed.
AAA Maps and Atlas
Throughout the next few decades, as the association developed, it expanded its scope of services. The AAA travel road maps were published. Hotel guides and AAA travel publications were printed. A School Safety Patrol Program and Driver Safety Programs were formed. And then in 1947, a separate entity was established. It is known today as the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety in which a large volume of studies are conducted that have to do with motorist safety.
Currently, AAA has 46 million members belonging to individual clubs. The AAA clubs primarily provide their members with emergency road AAA travel service including lockouts, winching, tire changes, auto first aid and towing.
