TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- AAA in Kansas says the number of drivers needing assistance this winter rose 5 percent.

The organization reports 22,103 drivers called the AAA Roadside Rescue Team in Kansas for help between Dec. 21 and March 20. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1rjVpGq ) that's a 5 percent increase over the winter of 2012-2013.

AAA says calls for dead batteries increased the most, rising by 16 percent, while calls for towing, pulling out stuck cars and opening doors for drivers who locked themselves out stayed at about the same level as the previous year.
