The Memorial Day holiday marks the start of the "100 deadliest days of summer" driving season.

According to AAA, teen-driver involved crashes kill ten people a day during these 100 days until labor day weekend.

A recent study also shows 90% of Americans say there are more distractions on the road now than there were five years ago.

Another deadly combination seen during this time is drinking and driving.
