In 2017, over 37,000 individuals lost their lives in motor vehicle crashes on highways across the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Many of these crashes were the result of distracted driving, speeding, or individuals driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Unfortunately, Florida is one of the states with the highest number of fatal motor vehicle crashes each year.
Where do these fatal vehicle crashes typically occur in Florida?
In Florida, the most dangerous interstate highways include I-95 and I-75. Studies show that Interstate 95 is one of the most dangerous highways in the country, running from Miami, Florida, all the way to Maine. The average fatality rate per mile averages .73 on I-95.
I-75, which runs from Miami Lakes to northern Michigan, averages a slightly lower .599 fatalities per mile.
Other highways in the state of Florida may not traverse multiple states, but they are equally as deadly. State Road 192 ranked third most dangerous highway in the country with an average of .867 fatalities per mile.
Interstate 4 that connects Orlando, Tampa, and Daytona Beach, runs only 132 miles but is considered the deadliest highway in the United States, with an average of 1.25 fatalities per mile. 
Rankings were determined from traffic fatality data generated by US highway systems over a five-year period from 2011-2015, according to fleet management software company Teletrac Navman.
