Traffic Accident in Louisville: Common Misconceptions
Many believe that accidents are more likely to occur during the winter rather than the summer. It is also common to hear people say that more accidents occur during the nighttime than in the day time. It is important to note that these notions are false and there is not adequate research behind either of these theories.
Accidents are not more likely to occur during the winter even though there is increase inclement weather. There are just as many different opportunities and circumstances that may cause accidents in the summertime, for example, increased road construction. While there may not be snow or ice, there are many drivers traveling in unfamiliar areas that could have an accident.
The same goes for the stigma that accidents occur more often at night, this is also false. Many believe this as they credit drunk driving or fatigue. However accidents occur in the daytime just as often as they do at nighttime.
