Memorial Day weekend kicked off what is commonly known as the 100 deadliest days of summer in the legal world. Unfortunately, it’s a time during which the number of accidents involving teens and young, inexperienced drivers skyrockets.
Car accidents can arise because of many different causes during this time, and anyone who suffers an injury should recognize their rights. Our team provides valuable information regarding causes and some safety tips to help keep others on the road safe.
Crash Causes During the 100 Deadliest Days
Proving causation after any negligence-related accident is vital to pursue compensation. As such, it’s crucial to recognize the potential causes that can create severe crashes in the summer months.
- Dangerous holidays: During this time period, there are three of the most dangerous holidays for potential drunk driving. Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day are three holidays and weekends that see an increase in drunk driving accidents.
- Young and inexperienced drivers: With younger drivers out of school during the summer months, there’s always an increased danger on the road. Inexperienced drivers are more susceptible to distractions and other problems.
- Increased traffic: Florida weather during the summer months can make it a common vacation destination. As a result, there are more vehicles on the road, increasing the likelihood of a crash.
We encourage all drivers to recognize the potential dangers during the summer months. Even more, be sure to discuss the dangers with your children and younger drivers. Explain how they can stay safe by minimizing distractions and focusing on the road.
