Teen Driving Safety
Vehicle crashes leading cause of teen death
Jessica Bliss of The Tennessean reports that parents take a great leap of faith before giving their kids the car keys. Crashes due to reckless and distracted driving are the leading cause of death for American teens.
Summer is the time of highest risk.
Students average 44 percent more hours behind the wheel each week during the summer than during the school year, according to research by SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions).
The 99 days from Memorial Day to Labor Day are the deadliest time for drivers age 15 to 20 with July 4 topping the list.
As you can see (and read further for more details of the article here), the risk is MUCH GREATER for teens - especially less experienced teen drivers during the summer months! We see this claim increase from our own customers with their teens in the household. So let this be a conversation starter for you and your family as we go through these dangerous 99 days. It only takes one accident to change a life completely or end it. We urge you and your family to be safe during this wonderful summer season ahead of us.

Here we go! The coldest temps of this season yet with windchills coming in the next 3 to 4 days. Some are saying a 'roller-coaster' weather pattern. In the meantime, a quick review of PIPE protection. One pipe burst can flood your property and make this Christmas season a sudden nightmare! As a public service, take these 5 precautions so you won't have that miserable event take place: CLOSE all foundation vents so cold air won't get in. CLOSE & SEAL your crawl space door. That...
