America's 100 Deadliest Highways Revealed: FL, CA, and NJ Home to Most Dangerous.

Wednesday, June 2, 2010 - 00:00

NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- With the arrival of summer, so too comes the deadliest time of the year on the road. The Daily Beast crunches the numbers to determine the 100 interstates most likely to generate a fatal wreck.

Methodology; The Daily Beast looked at five years of accident data, courtesy of the National Highway Safety Administration, from nearly 250 stretches of interstate highways to find out which roads are the most deadly, mile-for-mile.

Each interstate was broken into stretches within a single state. The Daily Beast measured fatal accidents, rather than total fatalities, which was then divided by the number of miles of that stretch. And any ties that may appear on these raw numbers driving these rankings are only because of rounding.
