The 100 days between
Memorial Day and Labor Day are the deadliest days for teen drivers, AAA says.
An average of 261 teens nationally die in traffic crashes during each of the summer months.
That's a 26 percent increase compared to the rest of the year.
"Life feels more
care-free when school's out and teens have more opportunities to drive or ride
in cars late at night with other teens – a deadly mix," said Mike Belcuore, operations manager for AAA Driving School. "Parents must realize that
there is no summer break from safety and they must remain involved and enforce
rules with their teens."
School suggests the following tips for parents to keep teen drivers safe:
and eliminate trips without purpose –Teens have three times as many fatal
crashes as all other drivers, based on amount of miles driven, and a teen's
crash risk is highest during the first year of solo driving. Parents
should limit teens' driving to essential trips and only with parental
permission for at least the first year of driving.
effective driving coach – The best way for new teen drivers to gain
experience is through parent-supervised practice driving, where parents can
share their wisdom accumulated over many years of driving. Even after a
teen has a license that allows solo driving, parents and teens should continue
to practice driving together to help the teen manage increasingly complex and
challenging driving conditions.
parent-teen driving agreement – Many parents and teens find written
agreements help set and enforce clear rules about night driving, passengers,
access to the car and more. AAA offers a parent-teen driving agreement on
its teen driver safety website, TeenDriving.AAA.com. The website offers a variety of additional tools and resources for
parents and teens as they progress through the learning-to-drive process.
