Most Dangerous Interstates in the United States

With the many distractions at our disposal, vehicle accidents are common
occurrences on highways. According to the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Fatality Analysis Report System that covered data from 2010 to 2015, an
average American spends around 293 hours driving around 10,900 miles every
year. With that amount of time on the roads, the potential for accidents
is substantial.

There are more than 70 interstates across the United States, but some have
proven to be more dangerous than others. According to several studies,
three of the deadliest go through the Sunshine State (Florida), including
Interstate 4 which ranks as #1.

EverDrive. All data was collected during a 6 year period, from 2010 to 2015.
