New Year, but take it slow!

Its finally 2017, which sounds great because it means we can start again and try to have a better year than we just had, but one big thing is to remember to take everything slow. Including driving in the winter. And as we might have noticed there may be some snow on the ground around now. So makes me wonder, when are accidents most likely to occur?

Fatal car accidents have actually increased in 2014 to a total of 32,675 people that year. Distracted drivers are the main cause for them. Most of the distracted drivers are around the 15-20 age bracket. While many accidents can occur between 6-9 PM or 3-6 AM, statistically the most fatal accidents are more likely to occur around 5-6 PM. Which is probably around the time people get out of work. Head out to supper with the family, or go to an event around town.

Living in a bigger city would make car accidents more common. where traffic is more congested or close together. Some distractions for car accidents have been a sudden noise, cellphone lighting up, or something falling in the car. Driving slow will keep you safer where if you drive fast you’re putting yourself more at risk of getting hurt or really injured.

So  even if you’re the best driver you know, we would still like to remind you all to take your time from getting from point A to point B. Which I think is a good lesson for New Years resolutions. Just remember “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, so remember to take your goals 1 step at a time.
