100 Deadliest Days of Summer

We’re in the midst of the 100 Deadliest days of summer for teens. More than 1,050 people were killed in crashes involving a teen driver in 2016 during the 100 Deadliest Days, the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day. That is an average of 10 people per day – a 14 percent increase compared to the rest of the year, according to data analyzed by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. More about why and what we all can do here and here.
