There’s this odd thing that happens when we hear of misfortunes on the road. We say: “It will never happen to me, I’m too careful.”
That said, there are some of us who, statistically speaking, are more at risk than others. And there are times of the week that are more dangerous. If you fall into these groupings, the sentence should be more like: “Hmm, there is more chance of an accident happening to me.”
For instance, if you like to have a couple of drinks and you are between the ages of 20 and 29, you’re in the danger zone. If you are a young male, even more so.
Add to that, if you’re out on a Saturday, the risk increases. Stats say three times as many pedestrians die on Saturdays than on Wednesdays.
Also, 61% of fatalities tested for alcohol were positive. So there’s a huge correlation between drinking booze and dying as a pedestrian.
