If you are involved in a car accident, you may suffer a variety of injuries. In some cases, these injuries may make it impossible to remain employed, complete your education or engage in social activities. Therefore, it is important to know when a crash is most likely to happen so that you can keep yourself safe while driving on Georgia roads.

Crashes are more likely to occur during overnight hours

Ideally, you will avoid traveling in the first hour after the local bars close. This is because there is a greater chance of sharing the road with a drunk driver. You are also more likely to encounter tired motorists regardless of where you happen to be driving during the overnight hours.

Wrecks are more likely to occur during the weekend

As fewer people work on Saturday or Sunday morning, there is a greater chance that they will venture out on Friday or Saturday nights. Therefore, your chances of getting into an accident are greater than they would be throughout the rest of the week. It’s worth noting that not everyone who ventures out on their days off is driving while intoxicated. However, you may still be at an elevated risk of being involved in a motor vehicle accident simply because there are more people on the roads.

You should always remain aware of road conditions

It’s always in your best interest to stay alert regardless of when you’re on the road. This is because there is always a possibility that you could be involved in a collision with another person, vehicle or object.
