Crime statistics show that the most incidents of violence and the majority of thefts occur between 9am and 6pm. Monday is the least likely day of the week to experience a crime incident.

According to USA Today, Saturday is the most hazardous day of the week for drivers. According to statistics gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the day of the week with the highest number of fatal vehicle accidents in 2016 was Saturday, according to USA Today. The day with the second-highest number of fatalities was Sunday. Monday had the third-highest number of deaths.
The NHTSA reports that there were 40% more weekend traffic deaths in 2016 than in 1995, even after adjusting for population growth. This equates to about 6,000 people killed on the roads this past year. Speeding accounts for nearly half of all motor vehicle deaths annually, with alcohol playing a role in 20% of those cases. Other factors include failure to wear a seat belt, not following directions, and not using child safety seats where appropriate.
Crash data shows that males are involved in 70% of all road deaths. Teenage boys are particularly at risk: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), young men account for almost half of all driving-related deaths each year. Black males age 20 to 29 have the highest rate of death on our roads of any racial or ethnic group. Their chance of dying in a crash is 1 in 5.
The South has the highest rate of traffic death among males. Hispanics are less likely than whites to be killed in a crash.
The number of killings increased by 1.4 percent to 21,325 in the year through March, an average of 58 per day, according to the police department's annual crime-statistics report. The murder rate of 36 per 100,000 people was barely altered from the previous year and compares to a global average of seven per 100,000.
There were more women killed than men: 8,924 women and 9,091 men. Black people made up 70 percent of the victims; most were black men between 19 and 34 years old.
Almost half of all murders were not solved. Police said lack of evidence was the main reason investigations failed to yield arrests.
Killings are commonly attributed to gang violence between rival drug cartels or "turf wars" over control of drug trafficking in South Africa. However, just under one third of all cases were found to be related to drugs. The majority of remaining homicides could not be classified as being due to any known cause.
Crime in general is rising across South Africa. In particular, there has been a rise in house robberies, which have increased by about 16 percent since 2014. There have also been increases in rapes, robberies, and assaults. Crime rates are highest in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Police say they are doing everything they can to reduce the number of killings but admit they are struggling against a powerful drug trade that is killing off their own officers.
