Early Friday evening is the worst day of the week for fatalities and serious injuries on the road according to the RAC Foundation. The RAC Foundation has analysed the Government's 'Road Accidents Great Britain Report' to look for road accident trends and finds that more car users are killed and seriously injured at 5pm on a Friday night than at any other time during the week. The 2001 figures show that on Fridays: At 9am 85 car users were killed or seriously injured. At 5pm 256 car users were killed or seriously injured. At 6pm 197 were killed or seriously injured. The average numbers killed or seriously injured at 5pm between Monday and Friday is 180. The fatal Friday evening trend seems to be a worldwide phenomenon with similar peaks from Hawaii to Tasmania. In the UK on Saturdays the peak is at 4pm and 3pm on Sundays. The 5pm fatal Friday trend is also reflected in the figures for cyclists, with 5 pm and 6 pm being the peaks for pedestrians. http://www.racfoundation.org/releases/170103rac.htm
