We are constantly reminded of the dangers of distracted driving.  Your morning or evening commute may seem routine and that you could do it with your eyes closed, but your commute can be dangerous.

A new study found that Friday commutes have the most fatal car accidents.  There are 17% more deaths during Friday commutes than Monday commutes.

Oddly enough the reason for the number of fatal accidents on a Friday involves drunk drivers.  Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays are traditionally your safest commutes.

I can personally attest to the drivers that weave in and out on the roads early in the morning before 5 am.  Now whether that involves, lack of sleep, distraction or alcohol I can't be sure.

We can only be more observant, less pre-occupied and drive defensively to make our commute as safe as possible.
