Young Drivers of Canada Offers Tips to Make Summer Driving Safe and Enjoyable for Canadians

More Canadians die in vehicle crashes in the summer that at any other time of the year. To help drivers avoid being involved in a collision, Young Drivers of Canada has produced Summer Travel Safety Tips that if followed, will help keep Canadian families safe while driving this summer.

Peter Christianson, President of Young Drivers of Canada says: "Most of us tend to be a little more cautious on the roads during the winter months when in fact you actually have a greater chance of being involved in a collision during the summer. Statistics from Transport Canada show us that a higher percentage of casualties occur on our roadways in the summer months when there are more vehicles on the road. Aggressive driving, fatigue and alcohol are often implicated in these tragedies."

The following are just a few of the Summer Travel Safety Tips provided by Young Drivers of Canada to help Canadian families have a safe, relaxed and enjoyable summer vacation. For a complete list of tips visit www.youngdrivers.com.
