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.
AAA PROMise is a program offered by the Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation to protect teens and everyone else on the roadways during prom and graduation season. By making the AAA PROMise, teens commit to making the right decision when it comes to underage drinking, drugs and impaired driving.
All high schools are encouraged to visit www.AAAPROMise.com and order their free tool kit. The AAA PROMise tool kit, valued over $200, will provide schools with educational materials and promotional items that will help communicate how to stay safe between prom and grad night by avoiding the dangers of impaired driving.
Through generous donations, our 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 ]

The AAA Teen Survey on AAA PROMise issues was conducted in January and February of 2015. Nearly 1500 teens ages 16 to 19 who recently graduated or are currently attending high school were surveyed in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Wisconsin:
- 31% of high school teens report it is likely that they or their friends will be under the influence of drugs or alcohol sometime during prom or graduation season
- 87% of teens believe their peers are likely to drive impaired instead of calling their parent or guardian for help because they are afraid of getting in trouble
- 30% of teens know other teens who have gotten DUIs for impaired driving
- 19% of teens have ridden in a car with an impaired driver
- 21% of teens have called their parents at least once to pick them up because either they or their ride was impaired
- 22% of teens have been allowed by their parent or guardian to drink alcohol more than once
