The California State Automobile Association is a motor club dedicated to improving roads, proposing traffic laws and improvement of overall driving conditions. It was founded in 1907 as an offshoot of the Automobile Club of Southern California (ACSC) to serve members in Northern California. Today, as an affiliate of the American Automobile Association (AAA), it also provides services to those in Nevada and Utah.

Just like the Auto Club, the CSAA sent teams of cartographers to survey California’s roads for the production of maps. The CSAA also helped post thousands of porcelain-on-steel traffic signs throughout the state and continued to do so until the State of California took over the task in the early 1950s.
