Driving Death Traps: New Map By MyParkingSign.com Shows The 10 Most Dangerous Roads In America

NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MyParkingSign launched a map of the most perilous interstates in America.  The map is the result of a compendium of sources that profile accidents and fatalities on roads across the U.S.  

The research to create the map examined the number of fatal accidents per mile on American interstates, positioning it against the number of in-state miles and total fatalities on the specific roads.  An accompanying article also details the qualifying factors of what makes certain roads so hazardous. For example, California I-15 is a disaster zone for driving because it is the connector route for people to drive to Las Vegas.

Key findings:

Road with the Highest Number of Fatalities: I-95 in Florida.

Most Dangerous Times to Drive: Between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Most Dangerous Driving Day: Saturday.

States with Multiple Dangerous Roads: Florida, California.
