Unfortunately, your anxiety about driving in the late afternoon is probably well founded. According to statistics compiled by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. time period is often the deadliest on the roads. In 2010, more people died between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. than during any other time period every day of the week except for Fridays (when slightly more people died between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.) and Saturdays (when the same number of people died in the 2 to 10 p.m. time period and the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. time period).
In 2010, as in other years, there was no time period on any day of the week that did not see a Wisconsin motor vehicle fatality. People died in the 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., and 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. windows.
