Is summer safer?

By Ken Gibson on May 29, 2015

Unfortunately, no. While summer can be a wonderful time, it is the Bermuda Triangle for wrecks: Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day.

Most days in Virginia, two people die in a car wreck. But on each of these holidays, 16 to 20 Virginians will be in fatal car accidents. So summer is a dangerous time to be on the road in Virginia, and specifically on the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck, where an average of four car wrecks happen each day. (Source: Virginia DMV)
