Most Risky Day of Week to Drive to Work? TGIF

By Tire Report

Oct. 1, 2012

After analyzing claims data from 2012, Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. has found that Friday may be the most risky day to drive to work, though that doesn’t necessarily mean you should start your weekend a day early.

How so?

The Columbus, Ohio-based insurance company determined its members have the highest average number of claims per day on Fridays—at 4,664. Wednesday came in second with an average of 4,197 claims, followed closely by Thursday, Monday and Tuesday.

“Regardless of when or where we drive, we all play a part in making our roads safer for each other,” said Bill Windsor, associate vice president of safety at Nationwide. “Focus on the task at hand—driving—and resist the temptation of your cell phone by turning it off or avoiding reading your text messages and emails.”

According to the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety, being rear-ended and rear-ending another vehicle are two of the most frequent types of crashes for both fleet drivers and the general population.
