Poway is a community in San Diego County that is home to nearly 50,000 people. Only 3.5 percent of the people in Poway are currently unemployed, which means that the vast majority of people here have jobs to get to every day. Anyone who has been on Interstate 15 or Highway 56 during the week understands that people in Poway are busy with their jobs and their family lives. Perhaps that’s why a troubling trend is beginning to emerge regarding car accidents here. That trend appears to be that driving on Monday is more dangerous than any other day of the week. Below is an overview of the last two years of accident data. If you have been injured by a negligent driver, regardless of the day of the week, contact a Poway car accident lawyer as soon as possible.
78 Poway car accidents occurred in 2014, resulting in 97 people who were either injured or killed. The percentage of crashes that occurred on each day of the week reveal that more crashes occurred on Monday than on any other day of the week:
In addition to more crashes occurring on Mondays, 76.9 percent of Poway car accidents occurred during daylight hours.
88 Poway car accidents occurred in 2015. 125 people were either injured or killed because of these crashes. In addition, a larger percentage of crashes occurred on Monday in 2015 as compared to 2014, as you’ll see below:
Nearly two-thirds of all Poway car accidents occurred during daylight hours in 2015. This suggests that people were involved in collisions while following their daily routines.
Monday is clearly a day in which we have to shake off the cobwebs of relaxation from the weekend and get back into the grind. Many of us are not as focused on the road on Monday morning or afternoon than we perhaps should be. That may be why so many crashes in Poway occurred during daylight hours on Mondays. Keep that information in mind as you get into your vehicle following the weekends, as it could make the difference between being involved in an accident and arriving at your destination without a problem.
If you are one of the unfortunate people who is injured because of the negligence of another driver, you have enough to do just to overcome your physical, emotional and financial challenges. Instead of attempting to deal with the insurance company or companies involved alone, seek the help of a Poway car accident lawyer who understands what it takes to hold those responsible for this type of harm accountable.
