LaHood Highlights AAA's Contribution To Driver Education

Earlier today, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood gave special recognition in his blog to the AAA Family for the extensive contributions made over the years in the area of driver education. The Secretary acknowledged AAA’s work in supporting teen driver education, including a new teen website containing information useful for parents and teens, as well as contributions and research that have been made on other issues such as driver distraction and drunk driving.

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has been a strong contributor to the AAA Family’s success in these areas over the years. The Foundation has conducted research related to Graduated Licensing, brought awareness to the problem of cell phone use while driving and highlighted the repeated dangers of drunk driving during the holidays.

I’m proud of the work the AAA Foundation has done and will continue to do in support of the AAA family’s goal of improving the safety of our roads through both driver education and meaningful research.


  1. Agreed, Peter. DOT isn't the only one who should call AAA "safety partner." Drivers should be comforted to know AAA is on the job--as they have been since 1902!

  2. I really inspired with AAA contribution in driving education

  3. Everyone who takes part in the Get in Gear Young Driver Training Course is issued with a customer questionnaire upon which they are asked to provide a comment I’m really glad I did the course, very good fun and informative.
