A recent study compiled the most deadly highways and times to be on the road based on National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics. At the top of the list, California Highways I-10 and I-15.
These two interstates rank fourth and fifth, respectively, for the highest number of fatal car accidents.
Other noteworthy statistics include:
• 50% of fatal crashes occurred on rural roads.
• 60% of fatal crashes were single car accidents
• Fatal car accidents are down by 15%, but fatal motorcycle accidents are up by 13%

Although it may not be possible to avoid driving on California’s most dangerous roads, use common sense especially during peak travel times – such as avoiding driving while distracted and designating a driver if you’ve had a few drinks.
