Teen Safe Driving Campaign

The 100 Most Dangerous Days for Teen Drivers

Overall, the crash rate for teen drivers is four times that of adult drivers. And more teen driving fatalities occur in the summer than any other time of the year.

We want all Michigan teens to have a safe summer. So take the time to study these numbers.
