Teletrac Navman Releases Infographic on Driving Dangers of Fall: Highlighting the Most Dangerous States and Cities to Drive in the U.S.
Analysis also includes data on which cities have the highest fatal collision rate in Autumn
Orange County, CA – Sept. 15, 2021 – Autumn is in sight, but hidden among the fallen leaves is a plethora of seasonal driving hazards that pose a risk to unaware drivers.
Teletrac Navman, a leading global mobile asset and fleet management software provider, has created an infographic containing tips on these seasonal dangers, including a breakdown of the top 10 U.S. cities with the highest rate of fatal car collisions in the fall.
Between the colder weather, falling leaves and receding sunlight, fall ushers in many unique conditions that make for potentially deadly driving conditions. For instance, leaves on the road – wet from seasonal rain – can be as slick as ice. The colder weather also means that tires lose pressure faster, leading to more accidents caused by underinflated tires. Fall also hosts Halloween, when children’s costumes hamper their vision while also making them harder to see on the road while trick-or-treating.
Some cities have had deadlier autumns than others. According to the data, the cities with the highest fall fatality rates for car collisions are:
The top three cities far exceed the national average of 2.65 fatal collisions per 100,000 residents, with Tuscon at 7.2, Glendale at 7.99 and Jackson at 9.62 – nearly four times the national average.
“Overall, fall may not have as many fatalities as other seasons, but there are still many unique dangers,” said Ben Williams, director of digital and central marketing at Teletrac Navman. “We urge our customers and everyone else on the road to be aware of these hazards and take proactive steps to mitigate the risks they pose.”
Over the next year, Teletrac Navman will be releasing an infographic each season highlighting the dangers for that time of year, along with tips to help drivers stay safe on the road.
