100 Most Dangerous Days to Drive

Graduation parties have ended.

Schools are closing their doors for the year.

The pools are prepped for the busy days ahead.

Memorial Day has passed and summer is here!

For many of us the summer months include baseball games, backyard barbeques and vacations to name a few. We anticipate the laughter, the good company and the much-needed time away from our normal routine. However, we all need to keep in mind the dangers those trips to and from ball games or vacations.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the most dangerous days are ahead of us when it comes to being behind the wheel. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, motorists are the most vulnerable. The summer season provides the best weather and driving conditions—yet accidents and fatalities seem to rise during this time period. Although driving conditions are better with longer daylight hours and clearer visibility, many drivers tend to neglect safety. The NHTSA said that there is a higher volume of holiday travelers, including a significantly higher number of alcohol impaired drivers on the road—so much so that nearly twice the number of automotive deaths occur during summer months than throughout the rest of the year combined.

Between these two (2) holidays we celebrate the Fourth of July which accounts for a significant number of auto accidents. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, from 2005 to 2009, July 4th ranked number one as the deadliest day of the year; resulting in 144 driving related fatalities on average. Of those fatalities, teens accounted for ten percent (10%) of them.

While the days may be filled with fun activities and nicer weather, we cannot neglect the importance of safety during the summer months. It is vital to never drive impaired or be in a vehicle driven by someone who is under the influence. Take the opportunity to talk to your family members, neighbors and co-workers about the increased dangers of being on the road from May to September. Be informed and stay informed when it comes to the safety of your loved ones.
