100 deadliest days teen driving tips

To our valued families,

I want to take a moment to bring an important safety issue to your attention. This weekend marks the beginning of what is commonly known as the “100 Deadliest Days” for driving in the United States, a period that spans from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Statistics show a significant increase in traffic-related incidents during these summer months (100 deadliest days), particularly among teenage drivers. The combination of more cars on the road, increased travel for vacations and events, and higher rates of impaired and distracted driving contribute to this alarming trend.

At DriveTeam, our mission is to improve your driving knowledge and skills so you can make the best decisions behind the wheel every day. Here are a few key tips to help ensure you and your loved ones stay safe during this critical period:

100 Deadliest Driving Days Driving Tips

  • Stay Focused and Drive Defensively: Avoid distractions such as texting or using your phone while driving. Keep your attention on the road at all times and anticipate the actions of other drivers.
  • Drive Sober: Never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Plan ahead for a designated driver or utilize transportation services if you plan to drink.
  • Follow Speed Limits: Speeding is a major factor in many crashes. Adhere to posted speed limits and adjust your speed according to road and weather conditions.
  • Wear Your Seatbelt: Ensure that all passengers are buckled up. Seatbelts save lives and are your best defense in a crash.

We encourage you to share these tips with your family, friends, and colleagues. By working together, we can help reduce the number of crashes and save lives during this high-risk period.

Thank you for your continued trust in DriveTeam. Stay safe and enjoy your Memorial Day!
