According to AAA, the deadliest day of the year for teenage drivers is July 4th. The auto safety agency says as kids are out of school and typically have less parental supervision, more accidents happen statistically during the summer months.
“Teen driving goes up by 44 percent during the summertime, and during these months, teens tend to drive more often . . .and they have less parental supervision than they do during the school year,” said John B. Townsend II of AAA.
In fact, 8 of the 10 deadliest days of the year for teenage drivers are during the summer.
