While the holidays are often a dangerous time on the roads, they are especially dangerous for teenagers. Recently, Allstate Insurance Company released a new teen driving hotspots study which lists the top cities for fatal teen crashes from Thanksgiving through New Years Day. The study looks at recent federal crash statistics, Allstate claims data on teen collisions and U.S. Census Bureau Statistics to score metro areas across the nation on rates of fatal crashes involving teens during the holidays. It identifies hotspots where deadly teen driving crashes are highest among the nation’s 50 largest metro areas. The following is a list of the ten deadliest hotspots:
• Tampa – St. Petersburg
• Orlando – Kissimmee
• Kansas City, MO
• Birmingham – Hoover
• Phoenix – Mesa – Scottsdale
• Las Vegas – Paradise
• Oklahoma City
The release of this study kicked off a campaign to promote safe teen driving during the holidays. Parents should talk with their teen drivers about being safe on the road at all times and not just during the holidays. They may want to emphasize concentrating on the roadways and limiting cell phone use by teenagers. In fact, that would be good safety advice for anybody, not just teenagers!
