Most Dangerous Times to Drive
Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle you run the risk of getting into an accident. Even if you are the safest driver out there, not everyone else on the road will be as cautious as you.
There are however certain times, days, and months that your chances of being involved in a car accident increase.
Time of Day
During periods where there are more cars on the road, such as rush hour, will increase the odds of getting into a crash. Rush hour is typical between the hours of 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. During these hours the roads become congested with people leaving work and rushing to get home as fast as possible.
Day of the Week
Saturdays have been known to be the most dangerous day of the week for motor vehicle accidents to occur. Many people are off work on Saturdays driving back and forth to activities throughout the day.
During the month of August, the dead of summer is the most dangerous month for drivers. More accident occurs in August than any other month. Many people are vacationing, school is out, and summer is almost over which means people are trying to fit in everything they did not get done at the beginning of summer.

I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
