Are deadly car crashes more likely to happen at night?

There are all sorts of dangers that can increase the chances of a motor vehicle accident proving deadly. For example, if a reckless driver reaches excessive speeds or is driving while severely impaired due to alcohol or drugs, the outcome may be devastating. If you are concerned about fatal accidents, there are other factors that you should think about, such as the time of day that you are on the road. If you have to drive at night on a regular basis, for work or any other reason, you should be vigilant and recognize the dangers.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that fatal auto crashes involving people who were riding in passenger vehicles are three times more likely to take place at night than in the day. In fact, not only are drivers more likely to be operating vehicles while impaired due to alcohol consumption at night, but passengers are less likely to wear seatbelts. Other factors that can contribute to the outcome of a nighttime accident include poor visibility and drowsy driving due to sleep deprivation.

If you were involved in a crash that happened at night, or any time of day, you should carefully go over your options as you move forward. If an irresponsible driver has caused you to suffer, you should take steps to have them held accountable for their actions. Sadly, many families have been left with permanent emotional pain after losing a loved one in an accident that could have been prevented, and they deserve justice.
