You may have heard of the "100 Deadliest Days", the period of time which spans from Memorial Day to Labor Day -- a time when there is a noticeable increase in car accidents and car accident related deaths, especially those involving teen drivers.
According to AAA.com in 2016 there was a 14% increase in individuals killed in car accidents involving teen drivers throughout the "100 deadliest days".
Driving at night, distracted driving, and speed of driving are highlighted as three major contributing factors to the dangers of teen driving during this span.
According to the National Safety Council half of all teens will be involved in a car wreck before they graduate high school.
We encourage you to check out the AAA's and many other resources below for educating teen drivers before they hit the road this summer:
