Millions of AAA’s service calls are preventable

Each year, AAA receives millions of calls for its Roadside Assistance. In 2014 alone, it got 29 million calls for assistance nationwide. Of those, 17 million were for just three kinds of trouble: battery failure, flat tires, and keys locked inside vehicles. Many of these issues could have been prevented with basic maintenance, but a recent AAA survey found that more than a third of Americans have skipped or delayed recommended services or repairs, a decision that can have painful consequences.1
