Looking to improve your driving skills? AAA has new resources to help.

Helping teens become safer drivers and educating the public about the dangers of impaired driving—from alcohol, illegal drugs and prescription drugs—are top priorities for AAA. That’s why AAA’s Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation helped create two new publications, “On the Move: Traffic Safety Tips for Teens” and “Bad Influence.”

 

Geared toward new drivers, “On the Move” features advice on driving, fun facts, quizzes, QR codes for educational videos, puzzles and more. From what to do when stopped by police to how to drive through a roundabout, the pamphlet is a comprehensive guide to enhance driving skills.

 

The Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation has published “Bad Influence” to help raise awareness of impaired driving. It includes helpful information on current laws, facts about impaired driving and more. Now that four states and Washington, D.C., have approved marijuana for recreational use, it’s a good time to refresh yourself on the dangers of driving under the influence of legal or illegal drugs.

 

“As a society, we’ve done a great job in raising awareness and enforcing our alcohol-impaired driving laws, and we’ve seen the number of drunken drivers declining,” says Amy Stracke, managing director of traffic safety advocacy for AAA. “However, both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Governor’s Highway Safety Administration have sounded the alarm over the increase in drugged driving. AAA wants to help raise awareness around the drugged driving issue.”
