When is the risk of a fatal crash especially high?

From lost lives to devastating injuries, car accidents can be incredibly devastating and prevention is pivotal. There are many factors to consider with regard to auto accident prevention, such as the time of day or certain days when an accident risk may be higher. If you are thinking about the likelihood of an accident, it may be helpful to take a look at statistics on this topic for a clearer understanding of times when driving is especially dangerous.

According to data presented by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, fatal auto accidents are much more likely to take place on the weekend as opposed to the rest of the week. The NHTSA states that a significant difference in the number of fatalities was not observed between Mondays and Thursdays, but that far more deaths take place on the weekend, Saturday in particular. These accidents may be more likely to occur on the weekend for various reasons, especially since many people make the poor decision to drive drunk after spending time at a bar or a celebration.

While there are times when the likelihood of a motor vehicle collision is even greater, it is also crucial to bear in mind that an accident can occur at any time. Whenever you get behind the wheel, you should be prepared to face the potential hazards that may lie ahead. If you are hurt in an accident that was caused by someone’s carelessness, you should also be prepared to defend your interests and take action.
