The AAA Foundation, a non-profit organization, is the preeminent source of traffic safety research and information in North America. The research and information available on their Web site is accessible by the general public for those seeking information on general traffic safety issues. The Web site http://www.aaafoundation.org has significant traffic safety research about teen drivers, senior drivers, our nation’s traffic safety culture and a variety of other topics.
From the AAA Foundation Web site, they have a link to their Centers of Excellence Web site, which features a program called the U.S. Road Assessment Program. The program has begun assessing each major roadway in every state to map the fatalities that have occurred, thus allowing safety-conscious drivers to find five-star roads or avoid dangerous roads. This tool is especially valuable as people plan their summer driving destinations, although the program has only completed about a half dozen states to date.
Finally, the AAA Foundation Web site has a link to a blog site: http://trafficsafetyculture.blogspot.com/ which has current articles from across the nation about traffic safety trends and provides readers the opportunity to post comments to articles in which they have a particular interest.
These resources and many others are available on the AAA Foundation Web site to the general public. Read what interests you and post your comments for others to think about.
