There are thousands of deadly car accidents in Florida and across the United States each and every year. While most of us are aware that getting into our cars is probably the most dangerous thing that most of us do each day, you may not be aware of where you are more likely to get into a fatal car accident. Being aware of certain danger areas can help you avoid catastrophe. Surprisingly enough, the biggest danger may be closer to you than you think. According to Esurance, most car accidents take place within 25 miles of our home address.

Of course, there is a bit of statistical skew here, given that the majority of us spend most of our time driving within 25 miles of our home address. However, there is an element of familiarity here as well. It is likely that you have driven home and once you parked your car in the garage, realized that you were on autopilot for a large portion of the last part of the drive. Making a note not to mentally check out prior to when your car is safely in the driveway can do a lot towards keeping you alert and alive.

You will also want to pay attention to the time of day. Hand-in-hand with the fact that many drivers go on autopilot when they are heading home, the most dangerous time of day to be driving is between 3 p.m. and 6 PM. This is when kids are getting out of school (and thus there are more teenage drivers on the streets for a while), and when exhausted adults (the ones on autopilot) are getting out of work and heading in the car to get home.
