NHTSA records confirm: August is a dangerous month for driving
Did you know that your brain is 80% water?
Or that Friday, January 4, 2013 was National Trivia Day?
Or that August is the most dangerous month to drive?
From time to time, we come across random facts that deserve sharing. Number 3 above is one of those.
Over the years of representing police officers and their family members injured in auto accidents, we’ve noticed an uptick in auto accidents in the late Summer. It turns out, it wasn’t our imaginations. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration records going back to 1994, August is the most dangerous month for traffic accidents—and Saturday is the most dangerous day! NHTSA believes the reason behind these statistics is that during the month of August more people are out on the road driving more miles than other times of the year.
Be careful this month.
