No more accidents on Friday 13th
Although today is Friday 13th, there’s no evidence that accidents are more likely. Figures released by the insurance company AXA shows that there is just the same number of car accidents on Friday 13th than any other Friday.
But Friday is what you need to worry about. It is the most likely day to crash, according Federal Roads Office.
The head of accident research at AXA insurance, Bettina Zahnd says Fridays are the day many people are thinking abut the weekend while driving home – or have been out beforehand.
Also, today is expected to be extra busy as many people will be starting their holidays.
