Fewer accidents occur in the spring months

TORONTO, March 18, 2011 - Spring time in Canada is one of the safest times to drive to avoid an auto collision on the roads. Only 21.8 per cent of accidents occur in the spring according to auto insurance quote comparison service Kanetix.ca.

In Spring into driving season: Fewer accidents occur in spring than any other season, Kanetix.ca says most accidents occur in the cold winter months of December, January and February. And the chances of being involved in an accident decreases as the weather becomes warmer.

Although spring is in the air, Kanetix.ca reminds drivers to maintain their defensive driving skills in the warmer months. Nevertheless, if an insured driver gets involved in an accident, Kanetix.ca offers some tips such as, remaining calm, contacting the police especially if someone is injured and taking photos of the collision.
