Are There More Accidents During the Summer Months?

Are There More Accidents During the Summer Months?

The summer months are fast approaching, but the time referred to as the 100 deadliest days has already started. Many people are unaware of what this means or why they are referred to as such, but it’s important to be aware of the potential dangers associated with them.

The 100 deadliest days are called such because the rate of teen fatalities in auto accidents increase from Memorial Day to Labor Day—the time when many teens are out of school and spending more time on the roads.

Overall, there are clear and significant dangers on the road, along with the increase in motorcycles, bicyclists, and pedestrians. This makes for more accidents occurring during this time and many of them due to an act of negligence.

The Potential Dangers

Think about some of the most common causes of auto accidents and how they impact drivers, motorcyclists, and more. Unfortunately, these dangers not only exist during the summer, they’re increased as more and more people get behind the wheel. Here are some things to look out for:

  • Distracted teens: During the 100 deadliest days, one of the biggest concerns revolves around distracted teen drivers who are using their cell phone or in their vehicle with other teens. These distractions are enough to cause significant and sometimes fatal accidents.
  • More motorcycles: Better weather means more freedom for motorcyclists. Unfortunately, this can also mean more dangers as people fail to signal when merging, check for blind spots, and speed through intersections creating left turn accidents.
  • More visitors to the city: The summer offers up a perfect time for people to take in the sights of Houston, but that means there are more individuals on the road. When you don’t know the streets of the city, it could lead to some confusion and sudden stopping, which can increase the risk of an accident.
