Your suspicions are correct: there are now more cars in the country than ever. According to 2014 data from Statista.com, over 250 million motor vehicles roam the country. Unfortunately, more cars mean a higher incidence of accidents on the road.
According to a study by CarInsurance.com, an accident may be just around the corner. Its research indicates the average person gets into an accident every 17.9 years. If you live to be 80, that’s about four crashes you’ll experience over a lifetime.
