In 1915, AAA began offering road side assistance. Road side assistance or ERS is an excellent benefit for AAA members. Road side assistance allows free towing if your car breaks down or if you are in a car accident or even if you have a dead battery that won't charge up. AAA will tow you to your home or to a garage. This is a great benefit and a good relief knowing that you won't be stranded if something happens to your car. AAA also will come out anytime of the day or night to jump start your battery if the battery in your car dies and won't start. If you happen to lock your keys in the car (which most people have done at least once in their lifetime), AAA will come and unlock your car for you so that you can get in your car. No matter where you are, AAA can help with road side assistance. What an excellent benefit this is for AAA members.
In 1905, AAA published their first map. Now, AAA has maps for all over the country that you can get from AAA as a member. These maps are free for AAA members and are great to have in your car for your state. Be sure to get a free updated map for your state and have one in each of your vehicles. AAA also can get you maps for your travel. Just stop in to the nearest AAA location and request maps for where you are are traveling to or call AAA and they will mail the maps out to you.
