The Head of Motor Insurance at the Co Operative, Grant Mitchell said: "We believe this is down to a combination of the ‘pre-Christmas rush’ when everyone is going to the supermarket or to buy last minute gifts along with the fact that people also feel tired and sluggish from the Christmas party season, which makes it harder to concentrate on the road.  â€œOf course, when these factors are combined with busy roads, bad weather and the fact that the days are at their shortest, accidents can and do happen.”

It also shows that Ford Focus drivers are most commonly involved in car crashes on 17 December, according to The Co-operative’s data. Vauhall Astras are second most likely to be involved in bumps and smashes, followed by Vauxhall Corsas.  "

The Co operatives website sets out the data that they have collected which reports:  
 - 17 December worst day of year for car crashes 
 - Bumps and smashes double in week before Christmas 
 - Ford Focus drivers in more crashes than any other road user


Go careful on the roads in the last week leading up to the big day - Wishing you all a safe festive motoring period!
