According to data gathered by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, California is one of the top three most deadly states to drive in. According to the NHTSA, I-170 through Los Angeles is the second most deadly stretch of interstate in the entire country. Not far behind at number 10 is the I-215 in San Bernardino. Together, these highways see approximately 5.1 deaths for every ten miles driven, but our state’s dangerous highways don’t end there.
The NHTSA reports that, out of 315 interstates examined throughout the country, California has the largest number with fatal accidents – 20 in all having made the list. Out of these, 12 were in the top 50 most dangerous and the two mentioned above in the top ten. This data is further evidence that driving in California can be a very dangerous proposition.
