Make the AAA PROMise
Everyone wants prom night to be memorable. It's a rite of
passage—a celebration of the end of high school and the
beginning of adulthood. Unfortunately, one bad decision can
make this special night memorable in all the wrong ways.
In 2009, more than one-third of teens under the age of 21 killed in alcohol-related fatalities died during prom season. AAA wants to ensure all seniors have nothing but positive memories of prom night and that everyone is able to get home safely.
The AAA PROMise is a new program offered by AAA to protect teens and everyone else on the roadways during prom season. By taking the AAA PROMise, high school seniors commit to making adult decisions when it comes to underage drinking and driving.
When a teen makes the AAA PROMise, AAA promises to be there for them and their parents. If a teen can't get home safely, they call their parents and their parents can call 800.AAA.HELP for a FREE tow home of the family vehicle.
Through generous donations, the Traffic Safety Foundation
works to make schools, communities and roads safer for everyone by providing resources and educational programs
for children, teens, adults and seniors. [ More Info / Donate ]
