Summer can be Deadly for Teen Drivers

With school out and summer in full swing, the number of kilometers your teenage son or daughter will be driving is going to increase. The message to young inexperienced teenage drivers; DRIVE SAFELY! and DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE! car_crash2.bmp Here are some harsh statistics from MADD Canada: 1. Of all young drinking drivers killed or seriously injured, the smallest percentage is 16 years of age and the largest is 19 years of age. 2. 40% of teenage drivers killed in road crashes have been drinking. 3. Young males account for 87% of fatally injured drinking drivers and 89% of the seriously injured drinking drivers. 4. 32.4 % of young drinking drivers are killed in the summer versus 8.0% in the winter. 5. 40.8 % of young drinking drivers are injured in the summer versus 11.4% in the winter. Go to MADD Canada for more statistics. According to the American Automobile Association, 70% of the deadliest days for teenage drivers occur during the summer months. As parents, it is our responsibility to promote safe driving and "increase their focus on safety during the school-free months ahead." Read the full Globe and Mail article.
