Dangerous day for drivers

TAKE extra care if you're out and about in the car today.

For a new study has found that Saturday May 26 is the most dangerous day of the year for motorists in Dumfries.

According to Endsleigh Insurance Services, the date saw more road traffic claims than any other in 2017.

And it was 21-year-old male drivers of Vauxhalls who were involved in the most motoring mishaps.

Julia Alpan, from Endsleigh, said: “We were surprised to see that the most dangerous day last year fell during the spring months, rather than the winter when you’d expect the roads to be icy and more treacherous.

“This year, the date falls on a bank holiday, so we’re anticipating it could be a record day for claims once again. We want to urge local people to take their time on the roads so they can enjoy their long weekends incident-free.
