Were you aware that there are certain times where being on the road is more dangerous than others? The reason it becomes riskier to drive is influenced by a wide array of factors such as:
- The Number of Vehicles on the Road
- The Time of Day
- The Day of the Week
- Fatigued Driving
- Distracted Driving
- Texting and Driving
- Driving Under the Influence
For example, the morning commute to work is less risky than the evening commute home. This is because drivers are worn out from working all day, are easily distracted, and might have had a few drinks after work before driving home.
Another time that can be riskier being on the road is at night when it is dark. For some people, it is harder to see at night, and that can lead to car crashes. There are also other factors that contribute towards the increased risks of car crashes at night.
