AAA For Kids

When kids learn how to be safe near traffic, they’re more likely to continue responsible traffic safety behavior as an adult.

School Safety Patrol

Build and grow a AAA School Safety Patrol in your school. Get our catalog, order patrol equipment, or find guidelines and resources from our School Safety Patrol website.

From car seats to bike safety and beyond, AAA Carolinas has safety, education and awareness resources for getting children to school safely, helping them stay safe as pedestrians, while taking the school bus, and into their teens when they become new drivers.

Join Us to Celebrate 100 Years of the AAA School Safety Patrol Program!

Since 1920, the AAA School Safety Patrol Program has provided a safer pedestrian environment and a wide spectrum of educational opportunities for millions of children. During the program’s long and distinguished history, AAA has successfully helped the Patrol to thrive and expand, ensuring safer streets for all school children.

AAA School Safety Patrols play an important role in helping young pedestrians learn and fulfill responsibilities regarding traffic safety. Millions of U.S. boys and girls have honorably served their classmates since the program began, and interest in the program has spread around the world. New Zealand, the Netherlands, England, Germany and France, have emulated the AAA School Safety Patrol Program — with similar positive results.

Today, the AAA School Safety Patrol program is the largest school-based safety program in the world, with more than 679,000 Patrollers in 35,000 schools across North America and 30 countries, providing a safer environment for child pedestrians and offering a spectrum of educational opportunities for schoolchildren.

AAA recognizes the AAA School Safety Patrol Program as an outstanding school safety activity. In addition to Patrollers who deserve special thanks for their efforts, AAA commends school personnel who administer the programs and law enforcement officials who contribute to the success of programs in their communities. The most effective Patrols come from a strong partnership between AAA, schools, parent-teacher associations, law enforcement, parents and the community.
