Personal Injury Attorney Nick Alcock warns holiday motorists of the perils of holiday traffic. Car accident lawyer Nick Alcock states, “We see a huge jump in accident cases around December. It seems that drivers in the Phoenix Metro area get distracted and lose their focus. There are many more rear end impacts and drivers failing to yield.”
So what can you do to stay safe? The worst time to be driving in Phoenix for accidents is between 4 and 6 p.m. The changing of the seasons means that it gets darker sooner, and many drivers are rushing around trying to complete holiday shopping. In general it is a good idea to avoid major surface streets if possible during this time. Never assume that another driver sees you or will yield to you. Finally, keep your lights on at all times.
Attorney Alcock states, “We handle accident cases and we get to speak to the drivers who cause car crashes. It seems that the common denominator is they say that they just didn’t see the other car. This is why keeping you lights on and driving slowly and carefully is so important. The other drivers just aren’t paying attention out there and you need to give yourself every chance to be seen.”
