Most Dangerous Interstates Highway in America

Having wondered across America several times, my wife and I chose the following road based on serious accidents observed per mile ‘ Not sure if statistics back us up, but we will never travel on it again: Interstate 10 from Florida to Texas

Actuality the most fatalities are on I-10 between Phoenix and LA in the Palm Springs area. It’s flat, long and straight so vehicles are traveling at 90 MPH and lots of semi’s.

i-75 through the entire length of florida is a NASCAR training track. other than a horrible rad bed thru Louisiana and what seems like 62-lanes of traffic thru houston, san antonio and el paso we haven't encountered many problems on I–10.

The 10 most dangerous roads in America
Ciara Appelbaum Sep 17, 2018, 10:19 AM

Highway 1Highway 1

Although the consistent, unchanging open road can be relaxing, some roads require a bit more concentration.

While there are terrifying yet thrilling roads all over the world, there are plenty of roads that offer adventure right in the US.

From Alaska's Dalton Highway to Florida's Highway 1, these are the most dangerous roads in the US.

The Dalton Highway in Alaska

Alaska's nightmarish Dalton Highway stretches some 400 miles through remote forests, tundras, and over the Yukon River.

What makes this drive extra scary is its 240-mile stretch with no gas stations, restaurants, hotels, or any other basic services. The road also contains multiple signs warning of steep grades and avalanches.

I-15 in Nevada

A 181-mile stretch of Interstate 15 between Las Vegas and Los Angeles was ranked as the most deadly stretch of road in the US in 2010. The study revealed that in 15 years alone, 1,069 people had perished on the road.

The Million Dollar Highway in Colorado

This stretch of US Route 550 traverses three 10,000-foot mountains passes, and winds across steep cliffs and hairpin curves, all without guardrails.

Local folklore says Colorado's Million Dollar Highway got its name because an early traveler said you'd have to pay her one million dollars to drive it again.

Highway 2 in Montana

Montana is known for being one of the most dangerous states to drive in, mostly because of its long stretches of highway in between towns. So if you have an accident, you're on your own, as it takes an average of 80 minutes for an ambulance to arrive

Highway 2 is particularly dangerous; it maintains a 70mph speed limit through mountainous roads. The road has proven to be so treacherous that Washington State recently spent $60 million to make the road safer.

Interstate 45 was ranked as the second-deadliest highway in the US in 2016 after analysts found that the highway averaged 56.5 fatal accidents per 100 miles of roadway. The most dangerous part of the route is in Houston, with 51 fatal wrecks from 2011 to 2015.

I-10 in Arizona

The 150-mile stretch of Interstate 10 through Phoenix to the California border is particularly dangerous, sending drivers straight through the desert. 85 deaths in this stretch of road were reported in a single year, alone.

Interstate 4 in Florida

Interstate 4 recently ranked as the most deadly interstate in the US. The 132-mile roadway has seen 1.41 deaths per mile in the last six years. The highway has also been in the top 10 most dangerous interstates for the past six years.

Well now you tell me!! We've been coast to coast on I 10 about six times. Still here to talk about it though.

I'm curious what route you are going to take instead of I 10.

Don't know where I'm going, spose I'll get there anyway.

I 4 in Florida or also known as " Damnation Alley". Why? not because of snowbirds,or tourist, because Floridians think they can drive any speed where ever they want, and everybody else is in there way. You live in paradise,SLOW DOWN!! Enjoy the beautiful state!
