Nationwide, 49% of fatal crashes happen at night, with a fatality rate per mile of travel about three times as high as daytime hours.Probably a combination of fatigue and alcohol. The fewest deaths
happened early in the morning, between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Those hours see significantly less traffic--only 9% of the average amount during peak hours.Surprisingly:
Mid-week days like Tuesday and Wednesday also pose the lowest number of fatalities, both averaging fewer drivers
fatalities actually drop across the nation during days with high amounts of snow, both because more people stay at home and because they tend to drive slower under inclement weatherI guess the best time to get groceries is at 4am on a Tuesday during a snow storm.
