Teen driver-involved crashes spike during “100 deadliest days”

The days are getting longer, and that means teenagers across New York will soon take to the roadways as classes wind down and they get a taste of summer freedom. Unfortunately, the uptick in teen drivers on the state and nation’s roadways means bad news for the motoring public, with the time period between Memorial Day and Labor Day so dangerous that it has become known as the “100 deadliest days.” At La Sorsa & Beneventano, we understand that far too many people suffer injuries or lose loved ones during summer’s 100 deadliest days, and we have assisted many people affected by traffic crashes pursue appropriate recourse in the aftermath.

According to AAA, fatal car crashes involving teenage drivers jump 14 percent during the 100 deadliest days, and there are a number of factors likely contributing to this increase. For starters, teenage drivers inherently lack the experience that older drivers have, and this can make it tougher for them to avoid accidents and anticipate challenges on the roadways. Furthermore, many teenage drivers speed or text and drive, and this, too, can dramatically enhance their risk of a car crash.

Speeding, in particular, is a common and dangerous behavior among teen drivers, with speed a factor in almost 30 percent of all teen driver-involved fatal car wrecks. Statistics show that driving at night is also particularly dangerous for teen drivers and others on the roads, with the number of nighttime fatal crashes involving teenage drivers rising 22 percent during summer’s 100 deadliest days.

In 2016, more than 1,050 people lost their lives in car crashes involving teenage drivers during summer’s 100 deadliest days. You can find out more about car wrecks on our webpage.
