New York City Vehicle Crash Peaks

 

According to Mean Streets, NYC averages over 180,000 traffic crashes annually. Up to 100 people – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers & passengers - are injured on a given day, and one person is killed in a crash every day and a half, on average.

Traffic collisions rise sharply from 7 to 9 a.m., when hundreds of thousands of people are commuting in and around the city to get to work then leveling off until 3 p.m., when it begins to rise to its highest level.

Statistics from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles from 2012 echo this finding: Traffic accidents are most likely to occur between 3 and 6 p.m.

In New York's early morning commute, the sun can blind drivers. Crashes due to obstruction of vision peak at 8:30 a.m. Arising again late afternoon around sunset when drivers commute home.

Crashes involving delivery trucks are most common between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. More than 100,000 deliveries are made by truck daily in New York City. The city's Department of Transportation has been encouraging off-hour deliveries, shifting some truck traffic to the hours between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Crashes of all types dip between 3:30 and 4 p.m. Is everyone driving more carefully in that window? Maybe not. NYPD shifts change at 3:30, and recording of crashes may be slightly delayed.

Speed cameras have been implemented near schools in New York City. But the cameras are only on for an hour before and after school hours. That means about 7 am to about 4 pm. The cameras shut off just as traffic crashes hit their daily peak.

Crashes peak at 4 p.m. and remain heavy as drivers head home. By 7, crashes start to taper off.

As night falls, crashes involving alcohol rise. They start to climb in late afternoon as the happy hour begins, but they shoot up as bars close. The hour between 4 and 5 a.m. is the most dangerous time for alcohol-involved crashes. By 6 a.m., crashes involving alcohol are slowing down, but overall crashes tick back up as the morning commute starts again.
