Where do car accidents happen the most?

There is no way of knowing when a car accident will happen. Even when you do your best to avoid trouble on the road, a simple mistake by another driver could put you in a dangerous spot.

It's a good idea to know where car accidents happen the most. With this knowledge of your local area, it's easier to avoid trouble and remain safe at all times.

Close to home

Many people believe that driving close to home is safest. The reason for this is simple: They know the roads like the back of their hand. Unfortunately, this isn't always true.

Car accidents often occur within 25 miles of your home. This is due to a variety of factors, including the fact that you may begin to relax as you get closer to your home base.

Here are two things you can do to remain safe when driving close to home:

-- Stay alert at all times, even if you know the roads and have driven on them thousands of times in the past.

-- Buckle up. Just because you are taking a short ride around your local town doesn't mean you can do so with no seatbelt. Any accident, regardless of location, can lead to serious injury or even death.

Time of the day

To go along with location, there are other things that can increase the likelihood of an accident. Time of the day, for instance, can have a lot to do with your safety. The most dangerous times to drive are later afternoon and evening (such as during rush hour traffic).

No matter who you are, where you are driving or the time of the day, if you are part of a motor vehicle accident you should do these three things:

-- Move your car to safety and call for help

-- Receive immediate medical care, such as at a local hospital

-- Learn more about the cause of the accident, such as who was responsible

It's always a good idea to do whatever you can to avoid trouble on the road. If you find yourself in this position any way, it's important that you know which steps to take to protect your health and legal rights.
