Most Florida Car Accidents Happen on Clear, Dry Days

0988915001582608536.jpgWhile dark, winding roads on cold, rainy nights might seem most threatening to drivers, data released by the Florida Department of Highway Safety suggests that it’s when driving conditions are best that the most car crashes occur. 

In fact, traveling home from work on a weekday in pleasant spring or fall weather may pose real danger. Statistics available on Florida’s Integrated Report Exchange System (FIRES) portal show that of the 401,966 auto accidents reported in the state in 2017, close to 68 percent were in daylight, nearly 78 percent were under clear skies and about 86 percent were on dry roads. 

The evening rush hour proved to be the most dangerous for drivers, with collisions spiking between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., and 5 p.m. was the peak accident time. March and October saw the most crashes, with about 37,000 incidents each, and each weekday saw more accidents than either Saturday or Sunday.

This evidence paints a picture of the perils that exist for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians in even the most common, daily circumstances. 

Accidents can happen to anyone at any time, and may have serious, long-lasting consequences for the health, finances and driving privileges of the people involved. In addition to the 2,924 fatalities caused by Florida traffic accidents in 2017, there were more than a quarter of a million injuries and 232,584 incidents of property damage. Lake County alone saw 4,731 crashes, 48 of which resulted in a loss of life. There were another 1,781 crashes and 31 deaths in Citrus County. 

FIRES data shows that drivers in their twenties are most likely to get in both single-car accidents and collisions, with senior citizens as the next most accident-prone age group. People between the ages of 20 and 24 were behind the wheel in 12 percent of accidents, while those between 25 and 29 years of age were involved in about 11.5 percent of accidents. Drivers over the age of 65 were involved in just over 10 percent of crashes. 

To avoid becoming a statistic, you should always practice cautious, defensive driving.
