Driving is probably the most dangerous thing you will do all day.
And since commuting hours tend to be the heaviest in terms of traffic, your highest risk driving time is probably before and after work.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 32,000 fatal car accidents occur in the United States every year. More than 2 million non-fatal injuries occur as the result of a car accident every year. Every day, roughly 90 people die in motor vehicle accidents across the country.
When compared to 19 other high-income countries, the U.S. has the most car accident-related deaths.
