Should it come as a surprise to us that the Florida stretch of I-95 is the most deadly stretch of interstate in the United States? As The Daily Beast reported a few days back, Florida is home to not only the deadliest stretch of highway along I-95, but also the third most deadly segment (I-4) and the 15th deadliest segment (I-75). With a total of 765 fatalities along the 382 mile corridor between 2004 and 2008, I-95 racks up 1.73 fatalities per mile. Not far behind, I-4 and I-75 report 1.58 and 1.14 fatalities per mile in the same period, respectively, according to data from the National Highway Safety Administration (an obvious misnomer given these sobering statistics).
