Crashing your car is one of the most horrendous experiences that can happen, even if it just a minor bump there is still a degree of inconvenience involved. What if you could avoid driving at the worst times and steer clear of having the knock in the first place?
Recent research from a well known accident advice website has revealed that Friday is the most dangerous day to drive. In addition during the spring months in March, April and May the worst time to travel was, perhaps somewhat predictably, between four and five at night.
The next most dangerous time to travel on any given day of the week was between 8am and 9am during the school rush.
An interesting anomaly was found however, that in the spring Wednesday became the worst day to drive with nearly 18% of crashes happening then over only around 16% on Friday. The trend is thought to be caused by better weather and a stream of Bank Holidays in succession which probably means there is likely to be less traffic on the roads on Fridays during this part of the year.
"Friday is obviously the worst as the mentality is to rush home," said the chief executive of the company, which carried out the research.
"We've all done the daydream about what we're doing that night, or over the weekend.”
