When They Occur

As shown in Figure 6, highway vehicle fires occur mainly in

the afternoon and evening, peaking from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Fires occur the least often in the morning hours from 4 a.m.

to 7 a.m.

Figure 7 shows that vehicle fires occur nearly uniformly

throughout the year. Highway vehicle fires peak in midsummer in July (10 percent), possibly due to elevated outdoor temperatures or increased vehicle use.

I was quite impressed with the stating the obvious approach with the graphs. Out of curiosity what would you guess was the rate of fires between 4 and 7 a.m. if peak is 100%.
