Rush hour is a dangerous time to travel because commuters and other motorists clog the road and may engage in reckless driving, speeding, or distracted driving in order to reach their destination in a minimal amount of time. These factors contribute to motor vehicle accidents, which, due to congestion on the highway, may lead to chain-reaction crashes, causing personal injuries or even fatalities for occupants of other cars.
