It’s not just your imagination, there really are more collisions on the road in the summer and thanks to an insurance expert we now know why.
There tends to be more drivers on the roads July through September as well as tourists. Tourists are most likely not familiar with the territory which can lead to a wrong turn and missed exits.
Also, we gotta talk about all that construction! In Canada the summer is prime time for construction which means congestion AND road rage!
Another reason the roads are more dangerous in the summer is that people feel more comfortable driving in the nicer weather. Drivers may become over confident, let their guard down and lose focus.
There you have it, people really are worse drivers in the summer so be safe out there!
