100 Deadliest Days of Summer

This is referring to the days between Memorial Day and Labor Day and reflects the the most dangerous time period for teen drivers every year. It is anticipated this year may be worse as more folks are getting back on roads with the ease of COVID restrictions and driver inexperience.

A recent AAA Survey showed how teen drivers responded to risky driving behaviors. They were asked in the past 30 days have you done any of the following and here are the results.

Driving 10 mph over the speed limit on a residential street (47%)

Driving 15 mph over the speed limit on a freeway (40%)

Texting (35%)

Red-light running (32%)

Aggressive driving (31%)

Drowsy driving (25%)

Driving without a seatbelt (17%)
