This makes driving one of the most (if not the most) dangerous activities we participate in each day, from a statistical standpoint.
The following infographic from Teletrac Navman shows the most dangerous highways in the United States, based on the average annual number of deaths per mile. It also goes into even more depth, revealing the deadliest city on each highway, most common dates and times of fatalities, and the most common causes of these crashes. There's a lot of information to be learned here, so check out the most dangerous roads in your region so you can know what to look out for.
