The Arrival of Summer Brings “The Deadliest Days” for Teenage Drivers

June 20, 2023

Memorial Day and Labor Day create bookends for what’s become known as the “100 Deadliest Days.” This is the most dangerous time on the road for teenage drivers. As teens find themselves enjoying summer, they face more risks behind the wheel. According to AAA, some key factors that increase the risk for teenage drivers are joyriding without a set destination and driving with passengers.

One thing that may help make this summer a little less deadly on the roads in Michigan is the new distracted driving law that was recently signed by Governor Whitmer. Under the new law, which goes into effect June 30, it is illegal to use a physical mobile device while driving (including for texting, calling, making or watching videos, checking social media, or anything else that involves actively using a phone). If pulled over for violation of the law, the repercussions are not insignificant.

If three violations occur within a three-year period, the driver will need to complete a driver-improvement course.

If you have a teen driver in the house, help them adhere to this law by making sure their car is properly equipped with hands-free technology, and consider establishing driving rules to keep your loved ones and others safe on the road.
