Insurance Company: Friday Has Most Number of Car Accident Claims

Generally, everyday driving puts the life of every motorist at risk. However, in an initial report compiled early this year and released by an insurance company, it was revealed that Friday is the most dangerous day for motorists to hit the road.

According to a report released by the insurance industry based from its analysis of reports it had received early in this current year, car accident insurance claims for Fridays reached an average of 4,664 each day.

Meanwhile, Wednesday comes next with an average of 4,197 claims per day and then closely followed by Thursday.

Consequently, Monday and Tuesday are the safest days to drive.

Meanwhile, the associate vice president of safety at Nationwide, Bill Windsor, speculated that some motorists are probably thinking about their plans on weekends rather than focusing on driving.

Incidentally, weekend is the most awaited time of the week since it is when people usually do the things that they normally can’t do during weekdays, such as going out with friends and family or taking a short vacation.

Moreover, Windsor claimed that nearly half of the reported accidents occur during commuting hours. In fact, according to a report released by the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS), minor fender-benders and being rear-ended are the most common types of accidents that occur during peak hours.

As a primary solution to this matter, a Los Angeles accident attorney suggested that drivers should avoid tailgating or leave at least a few seconds’ driving distance between their car and the driver in front of them as precautionary measures.

Furthermore, as everyone knows, distracted driving is the most common cause of accidents. Therefore, drivers should also refrain from texting while driving and instead focus their full attention on the road.
