Billings, Mt --//MNA Press//-- Friday the 23rd of November "Black Friday" as holiday shoppers would call it, an accident occurred at the intersection of 2th Street West and St. Johns Ave.
According to the Billings Police Department, there were no injuries associated with this accident. For the most part, traffic interacted with each other without much problems.
No road rage was reported and drivers seemed to use caution while driving the busy streets. According to the Value Penguin's Driving Study:
The most dangerous holiday driving is actually New Year's weekend which by national standards is the 2nd most dangerous time to do holiday driving.
On average according to the study 245 fatalities happen per year between 2001 and 2015 with 2018 estimated at as high as 500 fatal accidents nationwide.
Most people think that is is the party-goers that drink and drive that are the problem.
Surprisingly it's not. It is being on the phone while driving or texting on the phone when a person is behind the wheel that now is 95% percent of the cause of motor vehicle driving accidents during the holiday seasons.
