This day marks the beginning of the 100 deadly days. What are they? They are the 100 days of summer, the days between the last day of the school year, and the beginning of the next. In each of the last five years, 1,022 people were killed in car crashes involving teens during those 100 days.
- 89.2% of teens will be involved in a car crash during their first three years of driving
- 20% of all motor vehicle deaths are caused by teen drivers
- 50% of all fatal accidents involving teens are single vehicle accidents
- Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death among 15-20 year olds
If you are REALLY interested in saving the lives of teens, you should protest cars, not guns.
