According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), summer and early fall are the most dangerous times of the year to be on the road.  Americans drive more miles during the summer months than other times during the year.  The IIHS also reports that fatal crashes are more prevalent on weekends and in the late afternoon and evenings.

This increased summer traffic adds to your chances of windshield damage, warns the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI).  "Traffic congestion has been cited as a reason why the number of auto accidents have been going up and it also can increase the chance for vehicle windshields to be damaged by rocks and other debris."  PCI also warns consumers of fraud involving windshield repairs and replacements.  The warning is specific to Florida but is beneficial to travelers across the nation.
