Staying Safe During the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer

As the temperatures rise and schools let out for summer break, families across the country look forward to vacations, trips to the beach, and lazy afternoons by the pool. However, the summer months can also be the most dangerous time of the year, particularly for drivers and pedestrians. In fact, the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day is so perilous that it has been dubbed the "100 Deadliest Days of Summer."

This time of year sees a sharp increase in car accidents, drowning incidents, and other preventable tragedies. As we enjoy the long days and warm weather, it's crucial that we take steps to stay safe and avoid unnecessary risks. By following a few simple guidelines, we can ensure that this summer is a season of fun and relaxation, rather than one of tragedy and heartache.

What are the Biggest Dangers During the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer?

The 100 deadliest days of summer, running from Memorial Day to Labor Day, pose significant risks to road users. Increased traffic volumes, high temperatures, and a host of outdoor activities make this period one of the most dangerous for drivers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and cyclists. Statistics indicate that more people lose their lives in accidents during this time than any other season.

Driver distractions such as texting and using mobile devices, drunk driving, and speeding are among the leading causes of crashes. Therefore, it's crucial for motorists to stay alert, patient, and sober when on the road. By doing so, we can all play a role in keeping ourselves and others safe during these risk-filled summer months.
