Memorial Day marks the beginning of this year’s “100 deadliest days” for drivers. This is the most dangerous time of the year for motorists as accident and fatality rates skyrocket. One of the largest contributing factors to this is the abundance of teens and college students that will be on the highways. According to AAA, there is an average of 10 deaths caused by teen drivers crash every day during this period.
However, that shouldn’t distract you from the dangers you and your family face in the weeks leading up to it. Many students are finishing up their classes and getting out of their high schools and universities early. What they do for the rest of May can place you and other innocent drivers on the road at risk, so it is important to know what you might encounter.
