Make the AAA PROMise

PROMise logoEveryone 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.

AAA PROMise is a program offered by AAA – The Auto Club Group – to keep teens and others safe on the roadway during prom and graduation season by raising awareness of the dangers of alcohol- and marijuana-impaired driving, and distracted driving.

AAA PROMise asks teens to make the responsible decision never to get behind the wheel impaired and to make sure their friends do the same. Parents should reinforce with their teen that nothing is more important than his/her safety. If a teen needs help getting home and reaches out to his/her parents, AAA will be there to tow the family vehicle home, free of charge, member or not.

By making the AAA PROMise, teens commit to making the right decision when it comes to the use of substances – alcohol, marijuana and other drugs – and driving. As well as distracted driving.
