WEEKEND DRIVING

International research indicates that  fatal accident rates are SIGNIFICANTLY higher over the weekend when compared to normal working days.  Recent statistics show that almost one quarter (23,86%) of the  TOTAL weekly crashes happen on a Saturday, and 60% of all fatal crashes happened over weekends from Friday to Sunday.

This increased risk is a direct result of increased alcohol consumption along with the tendency for long journeys to be undertaken at this time.

The table below quantifies this increased risk:

                                              

In addition week-end driving is most often non-productive mileage which should at the very least be carefully monitored, with a view to reducing weekend mileage down to acceptable limits as  per your companies mileage policy.
