Major Dangers In New York During the Summer Months

While several negligent acts arise on the road, the summer months often increase the dangers. Unfortunately, teen drivers are most often at risk on the roads in the summer, but dangers can cause anyone to suffer significant damage in a car accident.

From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, it is considered the 100 deadliest days of summer. During this time, teen traffic deaths increase, and the existence of other dangers can plague the roads. Here are some of the biggest dangers in the summer months.

Distracted Driving

It’s a good time to remind your teen drivers—and everyone you love—to put the phone down and focus on the road. Younger drivers may also have several passengers in their vehicles, making for significant distractions (visual, manual, and cognitive).

More Young Drivers On the Road

The summer months often mean out-of-state travelers, younger drivers out of school, and other inexperienced parties on the road. More drivers alone create an increase in congestion, but younger and more inexperienced drivers can impact the potential of danger on the road.

More Out-of-Town Drivers

Long Island has several attractions that make it a popular hotspot in the summer months. Unfortunately, that also means drivers who may not know where they are going and are unfamiliar with traffic patterns and streets. As these drivers often use GPS, it can create some potential dangers that are challenging to avoid.
