According to a recent study conducted by State Farm Insurance, more car accidents occur around the holidays than any other time of the year. The culprit, they say, is heightened levels of stress.
In a survey, nearly a third of drivers admitted to becoming more aggressive on the road around the holidays. It seems the many pressures surrounding the holidays cause drivers to become more likely to speed and cut off other drivers. In the days right before Christmas, drivers are often running from store to store trying to collect the last of their gifts. This heightened level of urgency can be compounded if the driver is distracted. Drivers are thinking about holiday plans, work vacation time, and what store to run off to next. Since traffic is also increased around the holidays, the traffic and holiday stress can make for a dangerous pair.
Holidays can be a stressful time, and car accidents only raise that stress level.
