New Rochelle Wins Gold Award in AAA’s Annual Traffic Safety Program


AAA Northeast Press Release

The City of New Rochelle has won a Gold Award for efforts during 2021 in AAA Northeast’s Community Traffic Safety Awards Program, John Corlett, Vice President of Public & Government Affairs, announced today. AAA has long recognized communities that make outstanding efforts to make the region’s roads safer for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

As COVID restrictions lifted, many communities traffic saw an increase in traffic incidents. The City was cited for stepping up and adjusting its many traffic safety efforts for 2021 to keep those incidents down. Those initiatives included conducting child car seat inspections/installations, as well as education programs and targeted enforcement to discourage aggressive and distracted driving. The City also participated in a wide variety of enforcement programs such as Stop DWI, Click It or Ticket and seat belt enforcement check points, contributing to safer driving. Congratulations to the City of New Rochelle, Commissioner Robert Gazzola, and the many communities participating in this prestigious annual awards program.      

AAA Northeast is a not-for-profit auto club with 70 offices in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire, and New York, providing more than 6 million local AAA members with travel, insurance, finance, and auto-related services.
