Stay Safe During the "100 Deadliest Days" – A Message from BCSC!


Dear clients and friends,

As we enter the summer season, we want to take a moment to address a critical safety issue affecting our community. The period between Memorial Day and Labor Day, known as the "100 Deadliest Days," sees a significant increase in fatal car crashes, particularly involving teen drivers.

With more free time and less driving experience, this time of year can be especially dangerous for young drivers. We believe it is crucial to raise awareness and encourage safe driving practices to help reduce these tragic incidents.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Always Buckle Up: Ensure that everyone in the vehicle is wearing their seatbelt.
  • Avoid Distractions: Encourage young drivers to keep their focus on the road and avoid distractions such as texting or using their phone.
  • Obey Speed Limits: Remind your teens to adhere to speed limits and drive according to road conditions.
  • Preclude or Limit Passengers as they can become a driving distraction and result in failure to pay attention.
  • Pay Extra Attention at Intersections and When Changing Lanes: These are locations and situations where accident rates are high.
  • Anticipate Sudden Stops: Summer is a time of busy traffic and sudden stops are frequent, causing many rear-end collisions.
  • Never Drive Under the Influence: Emphasize the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Set a Good Example: Practice safe driving habits yourself to set a positive example for young drivers.
