Summer driving can be dangerous for teens

Parents in Kentucky may be especially concerned about their teen drivers in the summer months. As school comes to an end and many teens pursue active schedules of jobs, parties, internships and summer fun, they spend much more time behind the wheel. However, teens are also inexperienced drivers with a significantly greater risk of motor vehicle accidents when behind the wheel. Summer roads are often crowded with vacationers, and the increased traffic on the road can be even more difficult for teen drivers to navigate.

Driving while drowsy, a dangerous trend

Drowsy driving is to blame for 9.5% of all car accidents, according to a AAA study made back in 2018. In a survey, also conducted by AAA, nearly one third of respondents admitted to having trouble keeping their eyes open behind the wheel at least once in the previous month. Kentucky residents should know that this trend is growing and is also, where there are no comprehensive public transit systems, inevitable.

Despite the dangers, too many motorists text while driving

Driving a motor vehicle requires a person's full attention at all times. Unfortunately, as smartphones have become commonplace in everyday life, many people text, surf the Internet, or engage in social media forums, like Twitter and Facebook while behind the wheel. The average amount of time someone looks at their phone while driving is roughly five seconds. Someone who takes their eyes off the road for five seconds while driving 55 miles per hour travels the length of a football field. Considering these dangers, the consequences of distracted driving are both predictable and tragic.
