Motorists more prone to accidents on Fridays
Melbourne, May 11 (ANI): Motorists should be more wary when driving on Fridays, as it has been claimed to be the worst day of the week for a collision.
A new research from NRMA Insurance shows collisions on a Friday spiked by 16 per cent above the weekly average and Sunday is the least likely day to have a collision, the Courier Mail reported.
The peak hour times of 3 to 5pm during the week are the worst time for a collision and 11am to 1pm on the weekend.
NRMA Insurance spokesperson Damien Butler said the data was a timely reminder to drivers to focus on the road while they're at the wheel particularly on a Friday and during peak hour traffic.
Motorists in south-east Queensland, Australia have handed over more than 6 million dollars in fines from 10 mobile speed camera sites in the latest figures released by police.
"People may be starting to unwind for the weekend and be distracted on a Friday, which contributes to them being at higher risk of a collision," Butler said.
"In the afternoon, drivers may be rushing home from work, hurrying to collect their kids from school or heading away for the weekend and not taking extra care while driving.
"We want to urge drivers to focus on the road, be aware of traffic conditions and to stay calm while driving to help prevent the worst happening," he added. (ANI)
