A follow-up to the most dangerous highway in America

We recently discussed the road safety rankings of several noteworthy Florida highways. Of course, car accidents can happen anywhere from quiet suburban streets to the busiest highways. All drivers need to remain vigilant no matter where they are. The majority of accidents do not occur on highways and freeways, but there is still good reason to stay cognizant of which stretches of road have the worst safety record.

In light of further information concerning Florida's I-4, here is a description of the sections you particularly need to watch out for: 

Lakeland to Disney World

Disney World may be the happiest place on Earth, but the stretch of highway leading up to it is one of the most dangerous in the United States. August tends to be the worst month while early Saturday morning usually sees the highest rate of car accidents. The rise in collisions during this time likely has to do with so many people driving into the amusement park. Universal Orlando is also nearby, which could contribute to the increase in accidents. 

Plant City

Over the last couple of years, over 388 car accidents have happened on the stretch of I-4 running through Plant City. Drivers in their 20s are frequently responsible for crashes in this area. This just goes to show that no matter how much experience you have behind the wheel, you need to always practice safe driving to avoid causing a collision. 

Tampa

Over 500 accidents occurred on I-4 near Tampa between January 2016 and 2018. The area where accidents occurred most often was around the Florida State Fairgrounds and the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. One trend is that these types of areas tend to draw in a lot of tourists, so there may be people on the road not familiar with Florida's highways. As a resident, you need to watch out for anyone engaging in reckless driving to avoid crashing.
