How Likely Are You To Have A Car Accident? (Study)

/ Car Accident /

NEW YORK – How likely are you to have a car accident? It’s tough to answer, but if your name is “Sarah” or “David,” you may be more likely than others. Are you in your early 30s? If you answered ‘yes,’ be careful – because you may be more likely to get into a car accident, according to a new British study of common trends.

Researchers analyzed 25,000 incident reports to find out what makes a driver more or less likely to be involved in an accident. Among its findings, those who drive Ford cars were the most accident-prone, accounting for 16% of all crashes.

Drivers who are 30-years-old were most likely to cause an accident, and those who are 32-years-old were most commonly on the receiving end of an accident.

New York car accident lawyers at Cellino & Barnes say most people will, unfortunately, experience a car accident at some point in their lives, no matter how safe or cautious of a driver they are. Although this study’s method is unproven (there could simply just be more Sarahs and Davids out there), a New York car accident lawyer says it shows there’s still progress to be made and every driver should be cautious, defensive and safe when they’re behind the wheel.
