Memorial Day Marks 'Beginning of Accident Season' for Teen Drivers

As Teresa Gubbins reports for Pegasus News, Interstate 10 in Bexar County has the third highest number of car crashes involving teen drivers in the state of Texas. Interstate 10, but in Harris County, is the second highest. (At the top of the list is Interstate 45 in Harris County.)

The time between Memorial Day and Labor Day is becoming known as the "100 Deadliest Days," as Gubbins reports, because of the likelihood of getting into a car crash that kills teen drivers and passengers.

Interstate 10 in Bexar County had a total of 1,727 car accidents involving teen drivers from 2006 to 2010; I-35, also in Bexar County, had a total of 1,668 car accidents involving teen drivers, also between those years. It appears as though Bexar County is generally second only to Harris County in the number of car crashes involving teen drivers.

This is no surprise, as teen drivers out on Texas roads are inexperienced; inexperienced drivers tend to be negligent drivers. From texting while driving and speeding to drunk driving - and plain old inattentive driving - negligent drivers cause plenty of car accidents on Texas highways every year.

The iCar replaces traditional wings with a pair of Flettner rotors, tubes covered in small flaps that generate lift using the Magnus effect. While driving, these rotors fit inside the rear wheel hubs while a pair of electric hub motors drive the front wheels. Power is provided by a turbine engine which generates electricity in this mode. To fly, the rotors slide out of the hubs to be powered directly by the engine. The front electric motors slide out and forward, spinning propellers for forward momentum. After flight, the car can land on a normal roadway and the flying components can fold back into the vehicle.
