About the only way you can totally protect yourself from a car accident would be to ride in the President's armoured limo. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there’s been a 27% increase in intersection fatalities since 2010. After analyzing data to highlight the deadliest areas in the U.S. , a number of intersections have drawn attention.
- Since 2010, there’ve been 8,752 of these deaths per year. That’s 24 per day.
- In 2017, GA ranked 11th in intersection fatalities per 1k miles of road.
- With 3.24 intersection deaths per 1k miles of road, Georgia’s fatality rate was significantly higher than the U.S. average of 2.45 deaths per 1k miles.
Yet, even less populous states had highly deadly intersections of their own. Montana, for example, saw five teenagers pass away in a 2010 crash on notorious “Thrill Hill” road.
