AAA Carolinas Foundation for Traffic Safety

215X140 The AAA Carolinas Foundation for Traffic Safety is a non-profit organization supported by the AAA Carolinas motor club and its members. We are dedicated to providing information and resources to educate the public on traffic safety issues to positively influence driver behavior and improve safety on the roads and highways of North and South Carolina.


The Foundation has created two videos chronicling the stories of how lives were changed because of tragic traffic crashes in North and South Carolina. Victims, survivors, parents, and siblings share their stories of how their lives were turned upside down because of careless or inattentive drivers. Our North Carolina Deadly Driving Decisions video won two Telly Awards for the categories of Safety and Social Responsibility.
