There are countless factors which can make a motor vehicle collision more likely. However, some people may have a higher chance of being involved in a motor vehicle wreck because of recent changes to their work schedule. When your daily routine is thrown off because of work, this can cause all sorts of problems that may ultimately make it more likely for you to crash. Moreover, even if you are not affected by job-related challenges, someone else may collide with you because their work routine recently changed.
Sometimes, even somewhat minor changes to a work routine can throw someone’s daily life off in many ways. They may have to wake up an hour earlier, or they may have to stay in the office for an hour longer at the end of the day, and both of these changes can cause them to drive faster in an attempt to get home sooner or make it to work on time. Some people have an especially hard time adjusting to change, and these changes can cause various hurdles, making it harder to pick kids up from school on time or take care of other important responsibilities that have to be done at certain times.
Furthermore, some people experience major changes to their work schedules. For example, someone may have been working between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. for their entire career. However, they may have been asked to work the graveyard shift, which could be overwhelming for them. Their sleep may be disrupted, which can cause driver fatigue, and they may have all sorts of hurdles to overcome on a daily basis, all of which can increase their chances of colliding with other vehicles.
