A recent study from AAA found that traffic deaths involving teenagers were at their highest from May through August. The association released an analysis that found that seven of the top 10 deadliest days of the year for teen drivers fall between Memorial Day and Labor Day. “We know that in the summer, kids are out of school, so they drive more, and when they drive more, they crash more,” said Justin McNaull, Director of State Relations for AAA. The goal of the study is to encourage parents to put an additional emphasis on safety as the summer month’s approach. The high accident rate of teens also affects all other drivers sharing the road with the “school’s out” teen drivers. Whether you are the parent of a teen, or just another driver on the roadway’s this summer – you should be informed of the increased risk, and stay aware and focused on your surroundings. Remember, most traffic accidents can be avoided by remaining alert on the roadways.
