100 Deadliest Days of Summer

NC Department of Transportation
Press Release

School is out and the  100 deadliest days of summer have begun.  During these 100 days is when the number of crash fatalities involving teenage drivers rises. More people, including teens, travel between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and with COVID restrictions easing, more people are expected to be on the roads than last year. 

The Governor’s Highway Safety Program is reminding parents to talk to young people about being safe on the road. Speeding, distractions (like talking or texting on your phone while driving) and drinking alcoholic drinks before getting behind the wheel are leading contributors to crashes involving teenage drivers – and all are preventable.

Of course, adults aren't immune to the same problems.  That phone call can wait until you're out of traffic.  If you're headed to a vacation spot, driving 10 miles per hour over the speed limit will only get you ten miles further in an hour, and you'll likely only arrive minutes sooner--plus you might get a ticket!

Enjoy $5 Kids Fare on NC By Train

If you’re making plans to travel with your children this summer, take the train. The North Carolina Amtrak Service is offering $5 one-way fare for children ages 2 to 12, with the purchase of a regularly priced adult ticket.

To book, go to and use discount code V256 at checkout.

For passenger safety:

  • Masks are required;
  • Social distancing is being enforced; and
  • Enhanced cleaning is taking place regularly.
