Graduation season is nearly upon us. For most future grads, this is the best time of their lives. Not only are they excited about getting ready to go to college (or in some cases, to grad school), they are more than ready for the parties that will occur to celebrate the occasion. While we fully support the notion of celebrating a job well done, the reality is that accidents involving young drivers are apt to occur around this time of year.
Fatal auto accidents are tragic reminders that there are people on the road who fail to use reasonable care while behind the wheel. While auto accidents are the leading killer of young drivers, the likelihood of fatal car accidents increases during the summer months. As such, it is prudent for parents to have honest and frank conversations about the dangers that can befall a young driver.
