Most Dangerous Days For Traveling in Nevada

Most Dangerous Days For Traveling in Nevada

Although the majority of drivers who are on the road try to practice safe driving behavior, national data reveals that there are certain days which are the most dangerous days of the year for traveling in Nevada and other states throughout America. Drivers may want to take extra precautions on these days in order to avoid a car accident.

Historically, the travel periods around certain holidays experience an increase in the number of traffic accidents. This is due in part because more people travel during holidays, but also because of the increase in the number of people who are drinking at holiday events and gatherings.

Traveling in Nevada Is Dangerous During These Times

New Year’s Day, July 4th, and Thanksgiving all experience a spike in the number of alcohol-related traffic accidents. However, there are other days during the year which are considered the most dangerous because of the spike in accidents that are due to other factors besides drunk drivers. The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Lerner and Rowe recommend being especially vigilant on the following times of the year.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day Weekend ranks as the most dangerous day of the year to drive by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The days during this holiday weekend are not only dangerous because of the number of drunk driving accidents, but it is also considered one of the most dangerous because of the number of people who take to the nation’s roads as the kickoff to summer begins. 

Daylight Saving Time

The second-most dangerous driving day of the year is the start of Daylight Saving Time. Springing forward and “losing” one hour of sleep can wreak havoc on your circadian rhythm, causing you to sleep poorly. In many cases, this can lead to fatigued driving, while in other cases the disruption to normal sleep patterns can lead to a stroke while driving.

Black Friday

The day after Thanksgiving – referred to as Black Friday – is considered the third-most dangerous driving day of the year. Tens of millions of  people go shopping across the country to take advantage of fantastic sales. Unfortunately, this leads to major traffic and extremely crowded parking lots.
