The Hundred Deadliest Days of Summer

Sunday, May 25, 2014

The deadliest days of the year for teenage drivers are already here. The 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day are considered some of the most dangerous of the year because of their high risk of accidents. Those days are even deadlier for teenage drivers.

According to the AAA Foundation, while Memorial Day kicks off the year's most awaited season, it is also the beginning of the 100 most accident-prone days of the year. Those days are especially more dangerous for teenage motorists, who are already inexperienced, impulsive, and under severe peer pressure to indulge in dangerous driving practices. Besides, summer is when teenagers feel freer, have no pressure from schools and homework, and are therefore much more likely to hop into the car and drive around aimlessly with their friends. Teenagers are more carefree and excited about enjoying the holidays, which only pushes safety out of their minds. There are more numbers of teenage motorists driving around, and for most of them, safety is hardly a priority. The volume of teenage driving spikes over the 100 days of summer.

According to statistics, an average of 251 teenagers die during each of the summer months, into accidents. During this time, there's a 10% increase in car accident fatalities involving teenagers, compared to the rest of the year.

If you're the parent of a teenage driver, act to reduce the risk of your teenage child being involved in an accident. Set limitations on the amount of driving that they can do, and minimize the number of trips they take without any purpose. Your teenager should only be driving if necessary, and only with your permission. Make sure that your child is obeying all restrictions on the number of passengers in his car as well as the number of hours that he drives at night.
