How does the time of day affect accidents? Not surprisingly, accidents follow other traffic patterns. In the morning peak (6 – 9 AM) concentrations are farther out (as everyone is coming into the center of the city), whereas in the evening peak (4 – 9 PM) accidents are more centered near the CBD.

Try turning on layers (one for morning, one for evening) one at a time so you can see the difference.

AM rush
AM Rush (6-9 AM): Accidents are clustered on the main roads leading into the city.
PM rush
PM Rush (4-9 PM): Accidents are focused in the center of the city.
