Why is summer driving more dangerous?

You've probably heard that more people are killed and injured in car accidents during the summer. The data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) paints July and August as two of the more dangerous months of the year. But have you ever wondered why?

There are a few reasons, but one is simply that people are on the road more. They may be teen drivers who don't have to go to school or families on vacation when they'd otherwise be at work. More people and more cars mathematically means more accidents and injuries. More road congestion can also increase accident risks.

On top of that, the weather is warm and nice far more often, even in California, where it tends to be nice all year around. People are more likely to walk or bike in the summer. This further congests roads, creates new obstacles for those unused to driving around bikers and pedestrians and increases risks.

Some experts also mention the risk of The Dangers of Summer Driving," Theresa MacPhail, accessed April 11, 2017
