100 Deadliest Days For Teen Drivers

According to a new report released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a nonprofit research and education organization, motor vehicle crashes are reportedly still the leading cause of death for teen drivers between the ages of 15 and 19.  The new study was released to coincide with the “100 Deadliest Days.”

Specifically, the “100 Deadliest Days” is the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day because this is when fatal teen crashes historically rise. The organization’s study of federal data of police-reported crashes of drivers aged 15-19 from 1994 through 2013.

Researchers discovered that teen fatalities rose by 43 percent during the summer months of 2013. In fact, in 2013 371,645 people were injured and 2,927 were killed in accidents involving one or more teen drivers.

Additionally, new research conducted on the impact of teen drivers on others indicated that they put everyone on the road at risk. Furthermore, most of those killed and/or injured in automotive crashes involving a teen driver are individuals other than the teen driver him/herself.

Peter Kissinger, president and chief executive of the AAA Foundation, stated: “Teen crash rates are higher than any other age group, and this data confirm that the impact of their crashes extend well beyond the teen who is behind the wheel. Since teens drive more during the summer than any other season, this insight is a timely reminder to everyone—drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists— to be mindful when sharing the roads with young drivers.”

Jennifer Ryan, director of state relations for AAA, concluded: “While great strides have been made to improve the safety of teen drivers over the past 20 years, motor vehicle crashes still remain the leading cause of death for drivers aged 15-19. Everyone has an incentive to keep teen drivers safe during the summer—and all year long—because it makes roads safer for everyone.”
