Accidents and time of day question...

So I am relatively new to the forums and have been reading all of the "biker down" threads and was wondering if there is a trend with regard to the time of day when these accidents are happening?
More at night due to visibility? Drunk drivers? Phone/text use?
What about those that occur during daytime? I don't mean those that happen during group rides as those are mostly (it seems) to be rider error (newbies, taking turns too fast, etc).

Any input would be appreciated. I am really trying to be as safe as I can be but I know I can't control the people around me.

most stuff happens after 6pm when every one is on the road tired coming home from work and they dont care about anything but getting home.

also late night is bad because of all the factors you listed.

accidents can happen any hour of any day, ALWAYS be careful not just on "accident prone" days.
