According to annual motor car accident claims, Australian insurer, Real Insurance has revealed that according to its data, November followed by October and December is the month when most car accidents occur.
Says CEO of Real Insurance, Roger Grobler: “Our statistics reveal that if you’re looking to lower your risk of being involved in a motor car accident, February and May are the safest months to be on the road.”
As a general rule, Real Insurance found that there are more car accident claims during the summer months than the winter months.
Says Grobler: “Saturday tops the day of the week for the most accident claims, with Monday boasting the least accident claims.
“Unfortunately our statistics do indicate a gender bias. Female drivers, on average, are 15% more likely to have a car accident claim than male drivers and in regional Australia, women drivers are 65% more likely to incur a claim compared to men.
“It appears from the claim statistics that men tend to be better drivers in the age group 25-65 after which women prove to be marginally better drivers.
“However, in case of drivers younger than 25, Real Insurance’s data suggests that men and women drivers are on an equal footing when it comes to accident claims.”
