Safe Times of Day

I was wondering what the least safe time of day is. Almost certainly at night, of course. I’d guess close to 2AM, when people are drunk, there are fewer witnesses around, and you’re more likely to be murdered, mugged, or hit by a car. Anyway, I started wondering, when is the safest time of day? When are you least likely to be attacked, victimized, or caught in an accident?

And now I wonder if the night is, in fact, less safe. Most people sleep all night. Surely the sheer volume of people means that more crimes are committed during daytime.

Well, that got me nowhere…
