Common Summer Accidents
Summer is here and that means big changes for the flow of traffic with more teenagers and families on the roads. Increased traffic is a risk factor for car accidents on its own but when you add in additional teenage drivers who are at the highest risk for being in a car accident, summer becomes a much more dangerous time to be on the road. The fatality rate for drivers aged 16 to 19 is four times higher than that of drivers aged 25 to 69 years. Other common types of summer accidents are motorcycle accidents, swimming accidents, boating accidents, playground accidents and amusement park accidents.
