100 Deadliest Days: What You Didn’t Know

by: Jess Goodwin

Maybe you’ve already read statistics on the 100 deadliest days of summer, but there’s more that you need to know! And more importantly, more that you can do to protect yourself!

Statistics for the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer

The statistics are alarming and tragic for the time-frame of Memorial Day to Labor Day. This period is historically known as the ‘100 deadliest days’ of driving for teens. This year, AAA reports that the number of teen drivers involved in fatal collisions is up 10% overall. And specifically in the summer months is increased by 26% compared to other months of the year.

Battle the Dangers of Texting and Driving with Capitalism

by: Guest writer Paul Sippil

TextNinja tackles a serious public safety concern in an innovative way.  Rather than view texting while driving through the lens of punishment and control, it creates positive incentives for people to alter their behavior through a phone app where drivers will earn points for successfully refraining from texting while driving.  It also automatically silences incoming texts and sends a customized reply message, which alerts your friends that you are driving and helps raise awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.  The app even has a Campaign feature that allows community organizations to share their story, motivate text-free driving, AND provide a working solution to their followers who already want to drive safely, while quantifying their efforts through a points system so they can see the effectiveness of their message.
