AUGUST: The Most Dangerous Month to Drive!?

August Might Be The Most Dangerous Month To Drive

  • Last minute summer roadtrippers be forewarned: August has been named the most dangerous month to drive by insurance giant Nationwide.
  • Apparently more car accidents and road fatalities happen in the US during August than at any other time of year, based on 2012-2016 numbers from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
  • The culprits: hard acceleration and hard braking combined with traffic congestion.
  • And be extra cautious while driving on Fridays and especially on August 2nd, which is said to be the deadliest day of the year.
