BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — AAA of Western and Central New York has been making changes to ensure the safety of their members.

Their most popular service, roadside assistance, will be taking a social distancing approach.

"We are trying to make sure there are as many safety protocols in place as possible," said Elizabeth Carey with AAA of Western and Central New York.

This means that, if your car breaks down, AAA will not be giving people a lift back to the repair shop to avoid close contact.

There are also no members allowed in their Clarence repair shop.

The shop is still open for business Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

AAA also is suggesting any new drivers that cannot take classes in person, to look at online options.

AAA offers a variety of online defensive driving courses that can be found here.
