CHARLOTTE, NC, August 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As the summer months approach and teens are off from school for the summer, the risk of a teen getting into an automobile accident increases. June, July and August are the three deadliest months of the year for teenagers between the ages of 15 and 18.

Dangers of Summer Driving

When it comes to driving conditions, the summer months offer dry roads, great visibility and longer daylight hours. However, this benefit is offset by the increased number of drivers on the road. According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the number of automobile-related deaths during the summer is more than the rest of the year combined.

Motor vehicle accidents are already the leading cause of death for teens in the United States, and during these warmer months, the opportunities for speeding and underage drunk driving increase, making the roads even more dangerous. Drunk driving deaths increase nearly 50 percent with the teen population during the summer months. This is partially due to long periods of unstructured time and greater access to vehicles.

"Parents can really make a difference by informing their teens on ways to keep safe and still enjoy driving during the summer. Purchasing a safe vehicle for your child and telling them not to text and drive and to wear a seat belt can be the simplest but most valuable advice you can give your teen this summer to make sure they operate their vehicles in a safe manner," says PLACEHOLDER.
