3 Reasons New Haven Auto Accidents Are More Likely To Happen Over Summer Months

Summertime is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and vacation with your loved ones, but it also happens to be the season when the most New Haven auto accidents tend to occur. The following are the reasons why.

  1. More road construction means more opportunity for a crash. A cold-weather state like ours takes full advantage of the summer months when scheduling construction projects. While it is great to see maintenance and upkeep of our roads, these projects can cause lane closures, detours, and other changes to typical driving conditions.
  2. Teen drivers are out and about roadways during summer months. Teen drivers are inexperienced and are at an increased risk for a crash.
  3. Summer heat increases the risk of vehicle failures. As the temperatures rise, it can impact the equipment on a vehicle, especially the tires. In fact, when tires are a bit more worn out, hotter weather can cause the air inside of tires to expand, increasing the risk of tire blowouts and, in turn, auto accidents.
