Driving a car is part of everyday life for many people in Germany. But with routine comes carelessness. On top of that, time pressure and stress can lead to an increased risk of accidents.
According to Statista, in 2021 there were over 2,500 road fatalities. A declared goal of transport policy is to massively reduce this number in the course of “Vision Zero”.
This also includes creating awareness of the dangers in traffic – for example, on which day the risk of accidents is greatest.
According to statistics, most accidents involving personal injury occur on Fridays. In 2021 alone, there were 42,186 accidents nationwide on this weekday. Last year there were almost 800 more.
However, the other working days of the week are not far off the beaten track either:
The statistically safest day to drive is Sunday. With around 25,000 collisions, it is significantly fewer – in line with the term “Sunday drivers”, people in Germany are apparently a little more relaxed on the road on this day or generally drive less cars. With around 31,960 accidents, Saturday is at least a little safer than the rest of the week.
If you want to protect yourself, then you should always remember: Drive defensively, with foresight and consideration. This is the only way to avoid and reduce serious accidents involving personal injury.
