Was just reading the same report at a different site.

Found this to be the most interesting:
But the death rate on motorcycles was nearly 32 times higher than for cars. One of the riskiest combinations in the database are men between ages 21 and 24 who drive motorcycles between midnight and 4 a.m. Their road fatality risk is 45,000 times higher than normal.

The most deadly hour is at 2 a.m., which is often when bars close and many deaths are alcohol-related, Fischbeck said.
Since I rarely (almost never) drive or ride at that time of night and haven't drank in over 20 years, I should be able to stay safe.
