Interstate 10 runs through eight states including Arizona and has just been ranked the country’s most dangerous highway.
An AutoInsuranceCenter.com study found that the I-10 had the highest number of deaths at 278 over the past year followed by the Interstate 95 with 204 deaths.
Drive with caution this Memorial Day, especially when on the I-10. TripAdvisor data shows that 70 percent of those surveyed plan to drive this holiday, with 77 percent planning to travel 100 miles or more. Many of those people may be hitting the I-10, the fourth-longest highway which spans from California to Florida, according to Condé Nast Traveler.
More people perished on I-10, I-95, and I-40 than any other roadways, according to the study.
