How much do Americans drive?

America is full of drivers. The results of a recent AAA survey indicate that a vast majority (87.5 percent) of the nation's population 16 years of age or over got behind the wheel at some point in the year prior.


The survey findings further indicate that American drivers spend a good deal of time out on the roads. According to the findings, American drivers average over 17,600 minutes of driving a year each. So, in a year, the average American driver spends about 3 percent of their time at the wheel of a motor vehicle.

How individuals act at every moment they are driving matters. While the amount of time average American drivers spend behind the wheel in a year can be measured in tens of thousands of minutes, the amount of time of careless activity by a driver it takes to cause serious accidents can be measured in seconds. So, with driving a lot being very common in the U.S., it is particularly important for drivers to act responsibly whenever they are at the wheel.

While the amount of time it takes for a car accident to happen is quite short, the amount of time a crash can impact the lives of victims can be quite long. Thus, one of the things that can have a considerable impact on a car accident victim's future is what happens regarding compensation following the crash. Getting fair compensation may be able to assist with coping with the long-term effects of injuries from the crash.

Thankfully, victims of car crashes do not have to pursue compensation without guidance. They can have a skilled auto accident lawyer represent them in their compensation-seeking efforts.
