Triple A study reminds parents summer vacation should not be a vacation from safety

By

A recent Triple A survey finds six out of the top 10 deadliest days for teens occur during summer months. As deadly traffic accidents peak for teens during the summer months of June, July and August, Triple A is urging parents of teens to increase their focus on safety during the school-free months ahead. Triple A Traffic Safety Culture Director Michelle Harris says just because teens are on summer vacation doesn’t mean they are on a vacation from safety.

“Part of the reason is kids are out of school, they have a lot more free time to just go joyriding and do things with their friends and things like that, and often times they’re not being supervised,” she said.

The company says establishing a parent-teen driving agreement and eliminating trips without purpose can help keep teens safe.
