What is the most Dangerous Month to Drive?

What is the most dangerous month to drive?

According to the NHTSA, September is the most dangerous month to drive.

Why is this?

 

Daylight Savings  

September marks the end of summer and the beginning of darker evenings. Inexperienced, young drivers and older drivers who have difficulty seeing at night may find it more challenging to drive as it gets darker earlier, causing more car accidents.

 

Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend calls for increased travel and a heightened risk of involvement in a drunk driving accident.  

 

School

With school being back in session, traffic rates increase during the early morning and mid afternoon commute. As many parents transition into the new routine of dropping off and picking up their children at school, they may be more likely to rush on the road if they don’t have the routine mastered yet.  Additionally, many high school and college students are just starting to drive themselves to school, making the roads more crowded with first-time drivers.
