Accidents ascend as darkness descends

14.59 | 11 October 2010 |

A safety reminder has been issued in response to figures showing that October and November are the peak months for road casualties.

DriveWize, an online risk assessment and training solutions company, is warning drivers that as leaves, rain and darkness begin to fall, conditions for motorists become dangerous. DfT statistics for 2005-9 show October and November as having the highest number of injuries in four out of the past five years.

To help combat the dangerous conditions DriveWize offers an online course to raise awareness of vehicle safety and safe driving techniques, including advice on driving in bad weather.

Michelle Dorian, DriveWize director, said: "This time of year brings the worst combination of driving conditions as the weather changes and British summertime ends, yet motorists continue to drive as though they were still in the summer months.”
