Founded in 1902, the American Automobile Association was created in response to a lack of suitable highways and roads across the country. The company published its first AAA road maps guide in 1905 and began printing hotel guides in 1917. AAA began its “school safety program” in 1920 and other driver safety programs followed in the following decades. AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, which conducts a large volume of studies regarding motorist safety, was established as a separate entity in 1947.
AAA, formerly known as the American Automobile Association, is service organization and a vehicle insurance provider. It’s a North American not-for-profit automobile lobby group with roughly 50 million members with national headquarters in Heathrow, Florida. The organization originally had 1,000 charter members who were mostly of an auto enthusiast demographic. AAA’s membership base was formed from 9 local and regional motor clubs that combined forces to create a more powerful organization.
AAA was a sanctioning organization for auto racing in the United States until 1956. It sanctioned many races, including the Indianapolis 500. After the 1955 Le Mans disaster, AAA decided that auto racing distracted from its primary goals and the United States Automobile Club was formed to take over the race sanctioning/officiating.
AAA provides a variety of benefits for its members. They include life insurance, financial help, travel insurance, roadside assistance, various member discounts but the company’s primary line is auto insurance. It offers basic auto insurance.
