More Californians crash their cars on December 15 than any other day of the year, according to an Allstate Insurance Co. review of its California auto insurance claims over the past four years. The number of accident claims on December 15 jumps 23 percent compared to the daily average during the rest of the year.
“This spike in crashes could be related to weather, holiday shopping, travel or other distractions,” said Robert Feldman, Allstate agency owner in metro Los Angeles.
Crunching the numbers on its California car accident claims, Allstate found that the daily average number involving its policyholders during the past four years is 435. On December 15 that number jumps to 539. The fourth worst day of the year is just three days later. On December 18 the average number of claims is 523.
The top five days for collision claims in California are:
- December 15
- February 14
- October 13
- December 18
