School has been out for some time, and Massachusetts' drivers may have noticed that there are more cars on the road, especially those vehicles driven by teenagers. Now that they no longer spend their days in school and afternoons studying, teenagers are out and about enjoying their summer vacation. This means that not only are there more cars on the road, it also means there are relatively inexperienced drivers behind the wheel going on unfamiliar routes. This can cause car accidents-in fact accident numbers spike during the timeframe from Memorial Day to Labor Day, known as the 100 deadliest days of summer for teens.
We've all heard stereotypes about which group of individuals in Massachusetts make poor drivers. In many instances, these stereotypes are overbroad and can be downright offensive. Yet, one recent study has shown that one segment of the population, "millennials," are more dangerous drivers than other groups of Americans.
