Considered the most dangerous days for teen drivers, these next few months come with some harsh statistics.
When we think about summer, we recall late nights, lazy days and windows down. However, fast approaching are the 100 Deadliest Days are nestled between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day at the beginning of September. According to the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety (AAA FTS) teens (age 16-17) are three times more likely as adults to be involved in a fatal crash.
As teens take to the road, there are a number of potential dangers. Here are just a few:
Help change the statistics by talking to your teen about safe driving and set a good example behind the wheel.
Prepare your teen driver and commit to being active in their learning-to-drive process! No matter the summer fun, driving has to be taken seriously. Through education, proper training and parental involvement, we can help our young drivers to become better and safer drivers, keeping the roads safer for all of us.
