A new report from Triple-A finds the 100 days from Memorial to labor pose the greatest risk of teen driver fatalities.
The report finds that while teen car crash rates are down overall, teen crash fatalities climb significantly during the summer months. The report also found that 66 percent of people killed and 67 percent of people injured in crashes involving a teen driver are people other than the teen themselves. In 2013 alone, 371,645 people were injured and 2,927 were killed in crashes that involved a teen driver.
AAA is promoting the study findings to raise attention among parents of teen drivers and all road users, particularly during the “100 Deadliest Days” period.
