why I don't ride after midnight

I cut out some of the excess info.


The Deadliest Times That Accidents Occur


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), during the time frame between midnight and 3 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays the most traffic fatalities occurred.

NHTSA reported that the three hours between midnight and 3 a.m. on Saturday had the highest traffic fatalities with 1,247. The most injury crashes occurred between the same hours with 26,000 injury crashes occurring.

In terms of total fatalities measured by day of the week, Saturday again produced the greatest number which NHTSA reported as 6,897. Tuesday produced the fewest number of fatalities with 4,574.

The combined numbers for fatal crashes, injury crashes and property damage only crashes demonstrate that for all crash types combined, Friday was the highest at 1,106,000 total crashes and Sunday was the lowest with 660,000 total crashes.

with all the stress of people running around to show everyone how much they mean by buying them things instead of just telling and showing them; on the cell phones, mall-hopping....

thank goodness I'm a christian and celebrate Christmas as family time, not the latter

That's exactly why.

It was the worst "I told you so" moment for my girlfriend when I finally get a call from her at 1AM that she was just in a wreck on her way home from a bar.

F'in drunk drivers.
