For teens, the period running from Memorial Day through Labor Day ranks as one of the best of the year. That’s because school is officially out, meaning they are free from homework, able to earn much-needed income at summer jobs and, of course, hang out with their friends far more often.

On the other hand, the period running from Memorial Day through Labor Day ranks as one of the worst of the year for parents, emergency responders and safety advocates. That’s because it’s come to be known as the “100 deadliest days,” a timeframe in which the average number of teen driving fatalities has been shown to rise by as much as 15 percent compared to the remainder of the year.

At one time or another, every motorist must try to avoid flying debris or an unexpected obstacle in the roadway. The item could be anything from a chunk of concrete to a mattress to a toaster that falls out of the loaded bed of the pickup in front of you.

You may incur a cracked windshield or dented grill, resulting in a property damage claim with your insurance company. You might also end up crashing your car because you swerved and lost control of your vehicle. In that case, you might find yourself in another category altogether, if you or your passengers suffered injuries.
