Study: It's actually safer to drive on holidays
The NMA says that for the majority of the year the average number of claims comes in around 7,435, while the holiday with the most claims – the Fourth of July – netted just 6,031. The figures are without a doubt interesting, but we would be just as interested to see the insurance agency's numbers on the days leading up to and trailing away from major holidays. The majority of people who head away from home typically hit the road just before the actual day of celebration, so we're guessing the number of claims for, say, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving might be higher than the national average.
