Allstate Reports Spike in Texas Car Crashes
December 16, 2012
According to a report issued by Allstate Insurance Company yesterday,
Texans are more likely to crash their cars during the holiday season
compared to the rest of the year.
The report shows that the number of auto claims is highest on December
24, a 22 percent increase compared to the daily average of claims.
Other high risk days are December 18 with an increase of 21 percent
over average days and December 1 and 11 with an 18 percent increase.
"The increase in crashes could be related to more people being
on the roads traveling and shopping during the holidays, weather
changes and other distractions," says Carlos Cuellar, an Allstate
agency owner in San Antonio. "What's important for drivers is that
we stay focused while at the wheel whether on the highway or in
the driveway-during December and every other time of the year."
