Holiday drivers urged to use caution on the roads

LONG BRANCH - Drivers across the Garden State, especially teen drivers, are urged to use caution on the roads today.

Independence Day is ranked the deadliest day of the year for teen drivers and passengers, according to AAA's analysis of crash data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

"During the summer, teens tend to drive more often and with less supervision than they do during the school year," said Tracy Noble, spokesperson for AAA Mid-Atlantic.

AAA Mid-Atlantic suggests that parents should establish a driving agreement that keeps teens off the road at night and restricts riding in cars with multiple passengers.
