100 Deadliest Days of Summer
Another summer is upon us and as we make plans for vacations and summer fun, we would like to join our We Save Lives’ partners in reminding you that we are entering the “100 Deadliest Days of Summer.” This may be the time to relax and plan for summer fun but IT IS NOT the time to relax while driving, especially for your teens. Just look at some of the facts.
Drowsy driving may be the cause of 1 out of every 10 auto crashes
- Roughly 1 out of every 10 crashes is caused by a drowsy driver, according to a new study from AAA.
- The study tracked more than 3,500 people for several months, using dashboard cameras and other equipment.
- The percentage of accidents caused by drowsy driving is much higher than previously expected.

Why are only 16-year-olds required to take driver education in Georgia?
Many teenagers will use the summer to take driver education, but not all of them are required to take a formal driver ed course.
Why? For many parents and students, it’s a no-brainer. More than 80,000 teenagers in Georgia completed a driver’s education course in 2017. But times have changed from the days when driver education was part of the school curriculum and nearly every student took it even though it was not required. Read more here.
National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) Zero Distractions Campaign: Distracted driving a lethal epidemic on US roadways
The trucking world has taken steps to fight against distracted driving in our industry – but the National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) doesn't think that's enough. We want to end distracted driving in all vehicles. That's why the NTTC Safety & Security Council and the 2016-2017 Professional Tank Truck Driver of the Year Grand Champion Todd Stine worked together to create NTTC's Zero Distractions Campaign. And we're asking YOU to join us in the fight to end distracted driving once and for all on America's highways. Because When You Drive Distracted, We Are All Impacted!
Read more here.
Distracted driving has become a lethal epidemic. At any given moment, 660,000 drivers are using an electronic device on America's roads. A driver who is texting is over 23 times more likely to have an accident than an active & attentive driver - making it almost 2.5 times more dangerous than even driving while intoxicated!
The new Michelin x Vans collaboration is designed to encourage teens to take simple preventative steps that make their tires safe. To get your hands on a pair of the limited-edition shoes, get out a penny and a pressure gauge and prove your Street Tread by sharing a pic that shows you know how to maintain your tires. Only 100 pairs are available, so enter now by tagging #STREETTREADCONTEST or click here.

4th of July - Impaired Driving Campaign: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving
Americans love to celebrate the 4th of July with family, friends, food, and fireworks. But all too often the festivities turn tragic on the nation's roads. This iconic American holiday is also one of the deadliest holidays of the year due to drunk-driving crashes.
Over the 2016 Fourth of July holiday (6 p.m. July 2 to 5:59 a.m. July 6),
- 188 people were killed in crashes involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. This is a 28% increase from 2015 (146 fatalities).
- Nearly half of those who died were in a vehicle crash involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a BAC of .15 or higher - almost twice the legal limit.

Drug-Impaired Driving: Marijuana and Opioids Raise Critical Issues for States
GHSA's Drug-Impaired Driving: Marijuana and Opioids Raise Critical Issues for States presents new research to examine the impact of marijuana and opioids on driving ability and provides recommendations on how best to address these emerging challenges. The report finds that in 2016, 44% of fatally-injured drivers with known results tested positive for drugs, up from 28% just 10 years prior.
Technologies Can Reduce Cell Phone Distracted Driving
More than 3,000 people are killed on U.S. roads every year in distracted driving crashes, the federal government reports. Cell phone use is a common driver distraction.
Did you know technology exists that could prevent many of those crashes and save thousands of lives?
Cell phone blocking apps and devices can help drivers stay focused on driving. They prevent drivers from making or accepting calls, texting or accessing the internet.
