I hate to drive in traffic.
People drive too fast and too close, with little regard for others.
Oh my God! I've just become my parents!
Really, though, traffic can brutal, especially here in New Jersey.
Have you ever been on the road on Saturday mornings along the Shore as rentals switch out? It's brutal. How about late Friday afternoons in the summer as vacationers are heading to Long Beach Island, Atlantic City, Cape May, and other Shore Points?
Are these the most dangerous times to be on New Jersey roads?
Our friends at The Clunker Junker did some deep diving into statistics from The Center for Disease Control and found the most dangerous time to be on New Jersey roads is between 8 and 9 pm. You're at a higher risk of an accident during that hour of the evening.
Interestingly, our neighboring states had different "most dangerous" hours. In Pennsylvania, the worst time is 3 - 4 pm. New York, 6 - 7 pm.
The Junker Clunker also determined that Saturday evenings National-Wide were the most dangerous times for fatal accidents. Across the country, Saturdays 9 -10 pm were the worst times to be on the road.
So, please be careful driving, including Saturday nights, and every night, especially between 8 and 9 pm.
