THIS SUNDAY is the most dangerous day to drive

car accident

Data from Admiral Car Insurance has revealed that December 4th is the worst day of the year to be on the roads.

Analysis of 10 years of Admiral’s own insurance claims show more accidents are registered on this day than any other date.

In fact, of the top 10 dates with the most accidents in the year, 70% fall within December, and all are within the darker winter months (November, December and January).

Admiral is urging people to be more cautious on the roads with the shorter days and poor weather conditions, especially during the build up to Christmas.

“We know the winter months can bring some of the most difficult situations for motorists to try and navigate, and this probably plays a part in the number of accidents we see taking place on the road at this time of year,” said Lorna Connelly, Head of Claims at Admiral Car Insurance.

“On top of that, the lead up to Christmas can be a stressful time, with many of us having a long list of things to do, and places to be so it’s especially important drivers are well prepared for any trip they make over the festive period.”
