California Has Some of the Most Dangerous Highways in the Nation
According to The Zebra (culled from data out of the U.S. Department of Transportation, NHTSA, and the Fatality Analysis Reporting System – FARS), California is home to some of the most dangerous roadways in the nation. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured, seek the legal guidance of an experienced Beverly Hills car accident lawyer.
The I-5, which runs through several major counties in California (including Los Angeles) ranks third in terms of the most-dangerous roadways in the United States. Because it’s also a major truck route, it sees more than its fair share of deadly truck accidents.
Sections of the Top 3 Deadliest Roadways
California is the only state in the country to contain sections of three of the most dangerous roads, including:
- I-5, which – in the latest year for which data is available – saw 13.47 fatalities per 100 miles
- I-15, which – in the latest year for which data is available – saw 11.02 fatalities per 100 miles
- 1-80, which – in the latest year for which data is available – saw 7.21 fatalities per 100 miles
Only Texas and Florida come close to California – each containing two sections of the nation’s deadliest roadways. The reporting goes on to share that, in spite of the lower number of miles driven in the United States in 2020, the number of fatalities increased by about 7.2 percent over the year prior.
