Weekend Roundup: Bay Area Teen Safety

Posted on Friday, June 10th, 2011

Teenagers generally drive more during the summer, and as a result, studies have shown summer to be the most dangerous for teen drivers. Earlier this week, for example, AAA reported that seven of the ten most dangerous driving days for teens fall between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and a total of 7,300 teen drivers were killed in summer accidents between 2005 and 2009. But summer has also proven more dangerous for teen cyclists and teen motorcyclists.

So now that summer is here to stay, we wanted to highlight the week’s best articles and blog posts related to teen drivers and cyclists here in the Bay Area and across the country. Take a look, and let us know what we missed in the comments section, or on our Facebook page.

So have a great (and safe) weekend. And keep in mind that the National Safety Council’s Teen Driving Safety Week begins next week, so it’s a great time to introduce a parent-teen safe driving contract.

  1. Thanks for posting this. It is so important that parents understand the liablity they have when they have a teen driver in the house. Thanks for all you do!
