Top Safest Stocks For 2019

Despite several years of steady declines, deadly vehicle crashes are on the rise, according to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The safest day to be on the road: Tuesday. The most dangerous? Saturday.

That’s according to a new study by Avvo, an online legal referral and review site, which analyzed data from NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System in 2016 on how many car crash-related fatalities happened across the country by weekday and time of day. 

The analysis found that 6,802 lives were lost on Saturday out of the 37,461 road deaths that occurred in 2016. That was 53% higher than the 4,444 deaths that happened on a Tuesday, the day with the least number of crash-related fatalities. 

The second and third deadliest days were also associated with the weekend: Friday (5,826) and Sunday (5,809).
