Automobile Associations are usually tax-exempt, non-profit organizations that are formed to represent automobile manufacturers and dealers around the world. The associations often provide access to a variety of research and reports, as well as information on vehicles, recalls, broad investigations and much more. These resources may be useful to a private investigator who specializes in accident reconstruction and investigations. They may also be useful for private eyes who simply need to dig deeper into auto-related matters to find more information for their client.
