Statistically, August is the most dangerous month to drive according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The group also concludes that Saturday is the most dangerous day of the week. While many different issues contribute to road safety levels, the most impactful factor is the overall number of drivers on the road. Most motor vehicle accidents happen when people are driving home from work in rush hour traffic between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Research has consistently proven that the most dangerous times to drive include periods of increased traffic, times when road conditions are poor and during special events. Holidays and sports events are considered a much more dangerous time to be on the road because of the increase in the number of intoxicated drivers on the road.
Incredibly, over 95 percent of motor vehicle crashes are caused by human error according to one spokesman for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Driving experts agree that the best way to enhance your safety while driving is to wear your seatbelt, adhere to traffic laws, resist the urge to speed and pay attention to the road. Unfortunately, there will be times when accidents are unavoidable.
