Is December 5th Really The Most Dangerous Day Of The Year To Drive On?

Study Suggests More Accidents Happen Today Than Any Other Day Of The Year

According to a new study conducted by Co-Op Insurance, Monday is the most dangerous day to be driving on Britain’s roads

Data collected from October 1st 2016 through to September 30th 2016 was analysed and the result was that more accidents occur on the 5th of December more than any other day of the year, claiming Vauxhall Astra drivers have been involved in the most accidents on this day

Monday is the most dangerous day of the year to be on Britain's roads, according to a new study.

Around 60% of all collisions on the 5th are involving male drivers, while the average age of the drivers being 51

Nick Ansley, head of motor insurance at the Co-Op, said:

‘From our analysis the 5th December is statistically the day when most accidents happen on the roads.

‘In the run up to Christmas where the roads are busier with many making last-minute trips to the shops, darker nights and icy road conditions make the likelihood of accidents increase.

‘Taking simple steps such as leaving plenty of time for journeys, keeping within speed limits and just being aware of other road users can really make the difference and help keep communities safe this Christmas period.’

Nick Ansley, head of motor insurance at the Co-op, said icy road conditions make the likelihood of accidents increase 

Last week police forces launched a month-long operation to combat drink and drug-driving during the festive period

Forces around the country will target known hot-spots to detect people who are on the road illegally

In December last year police forces carried out 110,226 breath tests, of which 5,543 were positive, failed or refused, according to the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC)

Some 1,888 drug screening tests were conducted during the same period, with almost half turning out positive
