The coverage is perfect for those who travel frequently, who aren’t protected by life or accident coverage, or for those who simply want to top up their existing insurance coverage. You now have even more flexibility to purchase additional coverage: All membership types can purchase one of the four optional coverage levels.

CAA has also partnered with Drug Free Kids Canada on “The Call That Comes After,” a new drug-and-driving awareness campaign. Alarmingly, one in four young Canadians believes a high driver is either the same or better behind the wheel. But weed can affect coordination, reaction time, decision- making, attention span and the ability to judge distance.
