The Most Dangerous Highway in Each State
Geotab recently published an interactive graphic that maps out the most dangerous highway in each U.S. state. They calculated a fatal crash rate "based on the annual number of road fatalities and fatal crashes according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, adjusted for the average daily traffic counts provided by the Federal Highway Administration."
The state with the most dangerous highway of all: Florida, where US-1 has a fatal crash rate of 2.8, followed by Texas, where US-83 has a fatal crash rate of 2.0, and California, where I-40 has a fatal crash rate of 1.8. I-40's path of destruction continues into the forth and fifth ranked states, too—Arizona and New Mexico. The state with the safest most dangerous highway: Rhode Island, where I-95 has a fatal crash rate of 0.1.
