Connecticut Auto Accidents: 100 Deadliest Days & Teen Driving
We are deep into the 100 Deadliest Days, the time between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when newly licensed teen drivers are three times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash compared to licensed adults. In data collected and analyzed over the last ten years, more than seven fatalities occur each day nationwide during this time frame.
Teens are inexperienced drivers. Through research, the AAA Foundation revealed that 72% of teen drivers admitted to having engaged in the following risky behaviors in the last 30 days.
- Driving 10 mph over the speed limit on a residential street (47%)
- Driving 15 mph over the speed limit on a freeway (40%)
- Texting (35%)
- Red-light running (32%)
- Aggressive driving (31%)
- Drowsy driving (25%)
