Thousands of Mass. Drivers Involved in Multiple Accidents

February 11, 2008

Thousands of Massachusetts drivers with histories of multiple crashes continue to get behind the wheel despite law designed to crack down on habitual offenders.

A Boston Globe review of state motor vehicle records finds that about 87,000 drivers in Massachusetts were involved in two or more accidents between 2002 and 2007 — with more than 1,000 involved in four or more accidents.

That’s out of driving population of about 4.7 million.

The review also found women are safer drivers than men, teens are the most likely to be in accidents and Friday is the most dangerous day to be out on the roads.

The number of accidents spiked during the morning and evening rush hours and at midnight.
