Tyler, Tx — Now that school is out for summer, odds are you're going to seeing a lot more teen drivers on the roads. Parents need to beware that these summer months have the most driving related teen deaths.
The months of May through August are known as the "100 Deadliest Days" for teen drivers. Almost one third of these accidents are caused by drinking and driving.
In fact, AAA reports that almost 400 teens die during each of these months. One of the main reasons: teens will be drinking and driving or getting into a car with someone who is under the influence.
With the Fourth of July coming up, more officers will be on the look for these drunken drivers. Sergeant Blake Lockhart explains what to do if you do happen to spot one of these dangerous drivers.
"Stay behind them. You don't want to try to pass them that's a dangerous move or can be a dangerous move, but give us a call and that way we can stop them."
