For the past five years, May 20 has claimed the lives of an estimated 63% more teens than any other day.

Vehicle accidents are the leading cause of teen deaths, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also reveals that more than 60% of teen passengers die while another teen is behind the wheel.

Stay smart this summer while you're driving or in the car with friends: The time between Memorial Day and Labor Day is dubbed the "100 Deadliest Days" for teen drivers.

Don't distract the driver if you're a passenger -- that means no blasting Justin Bieber while cruising to go see a movie. And if you're the person at the wheel, never look at your cell phone -- even if you're just at a red light. Texting is the biggest distraction while driving and your full attention needs to be on the road.
An average of 15 teens just like you die every day during the summer in car crashes. The danger is real. Help other teen drivers by sharing your tips here for safe driving.
