Spring break brings a spike in traffic and auto incidents

Spring break brings a spike in traffic and auto incidents


Spring break is an exciting time of year for many. For college students and young adults, it’s a time to unwind, relax, and let loose. Many people take to the roads to travel and explore different vacation spots. A downside to this thrilling time is that it often comes with a steep increase in car accidents. The combination of more cars on the roads paired with distracted driving contributes to these unfortunate collisions. A study by researchers at the University of Miami found car-crash fatalities increase significantly at popular spring break destinations in Florida and other states during the spring break season, from the end of February through early April.

Causes of the Surge in Spring Break Automobile Incidents

The increase in traffic is a major reason for spring break collisions. Since many people utilize spring break to take road trips, the result is a congestion of highways and roads. With more vehicles on the road, the likelihood of traffic accidents increases. Alcohol consumption is another contributor to the spike. Many college students and young adults enjoy using their week off from school or work to party, and alcohol plays a significant role in these festivities. Drinking and driving puts both the driver and others at risk. Distracted driving is common during spring break. Whether it’s talking on the phone, texting, or even changing the radio station, distractions can lead to accidents. One final factor in car accidents is fatigue. Many people stay up late during spring break, leading to drowsy driving. When drivers are tired, their reaction time is slower and they may have a harder time paying attention to the road.

Staying Safe During Spring Break

So, what can you do to stay safe during spring break? Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Plan your route ahead of time. Before you hit the road, make sure you know where you’re going and how to get there. This will help you avoid getting lost and eliminate distractions.
  2. Don’t drink and drive. This should go without saying, but it is worth repeating. If you plan on drinking, make sure you have a designated driver or rideshare service to get around.
  3. Avoid distractions. Keep your focus on the road and avoid distractions such as texting, talking on the phone, or changing the radio station while driving.
  4. Get plenty of rest. Make sure you’re well rested before hitting the road. If you’re feeling tired while driving, take a break and get some rest, or switch drivers.
  5. Drive defensively. Always be aware of your surroundings and anticipate the actions of other drivers. Defensive driving can help you avoid accidents so you can stay safe on the roads.

Spring break car accidents can be devastating, so it's important to take steps to stay safe on the roads. By following these tips and being aware of the risks associated with spring break driving, you can help reduce the likelihood of an accident and keep spring break a fun and safe experience.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
