The Cincinnati Accident Attorneys at the Law Offices of Blake R. Maislin want to encourage extra driving vigilance as the year winds down.
That's because, according to 2013 crash statistics from the Ohio Department of Public Transportation, November and December registered the highest overall number of crashes of all 12 months surveyed last year.
In 2013, November and December were the only two months that saw more than 26,400 crashes each. There were a total of 269,079 auto and vehicle accidents in Ohio that year, according to this research.
April reflected the lowest number of crashes for 2013, with just under 19,500.
Here are three other noteworthy statistics from last year's Ohio state crash statistics:
Traffic accident fatalities were down from 1,122 people killed in 2012 to 990 people killed in 2013.
2013 reflected the first time in recorded history that Ohio state experienced less than 1,000 car accident fatalities.
465 vehicle passengers lost their lives in car accidents in 2013 because they failed to wear a seatbelt.
Roughly 30 percent of the accidents in 2013 involved alcohol-impaired drivers.
