3 Safety Tips for the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer

The 100 deadliest days of summer are just about here, and teenage drivers are at an increased risk of danger during this time. Parents should speak with their children about safety and the various things they can do to protect themselves on the road.

Memorial Day weekend starts the 100 deadliest days of summer, and they go until Labor Day weekend. During this time, accidents involving teenage drivers increase. However, everyone can face the potential dangers on the road. Here are some safety tips for you to share:

Avoid Distractions

Distractions can include passengers inside a vehicle, which is very common amongst younger drivers. Even having deep conversations with passengers can cause a cognitive distraction. Teach teens that they should put down their phones, avoid having too many people in the car, and wait to eat or drink.

As a driver, you can watch for potentially distracted drivers by their actions. If you see someone speeding, randomly braking, or swerving, it’s best to stay away from the vehicle.

Beware of Rush Hours

Some hours result in more traffic than others. Younger drivers might not have significant experience with driving in traffic. It helps to know when the most congested hours are and try to avoid highly trafficked highways.

Avoid Nighttime Driving

Ventura County and Santa Barbara County are popular travel destinations during the summer months. The nighttime can be dangerous if drivers are out late with friends. The most common problems at night are drunk or fatigued drivers.
