August found to be the most dangerous month to drive

August is the dangerous month of the year for American drivers. In 2009, 2,864 people died in car accidents in August. There are 1.09 fatalities per 100 million miles traveled, more than any other month. March is considered the safest month to drive with only 0.94 fatalities per 100 million miles traveled.

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, August is the most dangerous month for motorists because more people drive more miles than any other month of the year. Weekends are the most deadly days to drive, with an average of 123 deaths every Saturday, 107 on Sunday, and 102 on Fridays.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that despite increased safety technology, nearly half of passengers and drivers between the ages of 13 and 59 do not buckle up.
