A new study by Ever Drive has found that the stretch of Interstate 4 between
Daytona Beach and Tampa, Florida is the most dangerous interstate in the
country. The company used data from 2010 to 2015 from the Highway Traffic
Safety Administration’s fatality analysis report, which revealed
that there were 1.41 fatalities per mile during the last six years along
the 132-mile stretch of highway.
Experts believe that high levels of distraction, tourism, and the I-4
Ultimate improvement project are all contributing factors to the high
fatality rate. According to locals, reckless driving is also a big problem.
Changing lanes without signaling and speeding are two of the most common
causes of accidents that plague this dangerous stretch of highway. In
fact, the problem has gotten so bad that many locals report that they
avoid driving on the I-4 if they can. According to an article by
, hundreds of social media users reported that they were not surprised
by the recent analysis, with some even stating that they experience severe
panic attacks when they travel on Interstate 4.
