Wednesday could be a very dangerous day.
According to Allstate Insurance, December 15 is the most dangerous day of the year for motorists. The number of car insurance claims on December 15 increases by more than 20 percent compared to other days throughout the year, according to a four-year analysis by the insurer.
“This spike in crashes could be related to weather, holiday shopping, travel or other distractions,” said Allstate subsidiary agency owner Robert Feldman, to news reports . “What’s important for drivers is that we stay focused while at the wheel whether on the highway or in the driveway on December 15 and every day of the year.”
As a North Charleston car accident attorney, , it’s interesting to see that more accidents are caused on some days than others. December weather causes some of the worst road conditions, which attributes to increased numbers of car accidents . Drivers can be extra cautious next week, but remember to always follow safe driving techniques on every day of the year, including wearing your seatbelt, not speeding and being aware of drivers around you. Just because the numbers show one day of the year to be especially dangerous, everyday could be dangerous for drivers. I challenge drivers to reject this statistic and make Wednesday, and every day, a safe driving day.
