Roadside Assistance is the main reason people join AAA and why they renew year after year. Not just for major breakdowns, either. Lock your keys in the car or get a flat and we’ll be there, day or night throughout the U.S. and Canada. Our average arrival time is about 25 minutes in the metropolitan areas of Southern California. Your membership covers you, not your vehicle, so you can call whether you are in your own car, a friend’s car, or a rental.
