Auto Accident Statistics

A chiropractor soliciting businesssent to our law firm these auto accident facts listed below. This chiropractor did not provide any support for his statistics so I pass them along on a for what they are worth basis because (1) they are interesting and (2) they also give you some food for thought as to the best and worst times to grab your kids and take them out on the road.

•More car crashes occur between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Friday then any other time of the week.

    I can’t vouch for the data but it doesn’t sound off base either. As a former A-EMT Intermediate working in the Buffalo-Niagara, New York region, Fridays were full of emergency calls from mid afternoon until late the next morning; Saturday evenings were next; summer months were the worst because more people were out drinking and driving.
