When do most vehicular accidents and deaths occur? ( Just the stats )

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney and this is a continuing series about statistics in auto, motorcycle and trucking accidents.

Clients have often asked me the most dangerous day of the week to be driving.  In 2012, most fatalities happened on Saturdays (18 percent), while Sundays ( 16 percent) and Fridays (15 percent) were close behind. The morning rush hours were the most dangerous time of day, followed by the evening rush hours.

The most dangerous month for accidents was July, closely followed by June and September.

 

Holiday driving is especially hazardous. The greatest number of motor vehicle deaths occur on Thanksgiving (484) , closely followed by Labor Day (473)  and the the 4th of July  (Independence Day) 472.

The above statistics were from the National Safety Council.

Again, I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento personal injury attorney since 1982. If I can help you or someone you love, call me anytime at 916-921-6400 or 800-404-5400. You can find out more about my law firm,  AutoAccident.com here or read about us on Yelp, Nolo or Avvo.
