Two Florida Highways Among Most Dangerous Roads In U.S.
Two Florida highways were listed among AAA’s most dangerous roads in the U.S.. We see a lot of accidents here in Florida. One may think it could be because we have drivers from so many different states that are not familiar with our area. Other’s blame it on cell phone usage behind the wheel.
Whether you’re taking a major highway or the backroads, accidents happen. Here’s a look at some of the other most dangerous roads in the U.S., according to AAA.

AAA recently compiled a list of some of the most dangerous roads in America. To nobody’s surprise, two Florida highways made the list.
Here are the Florida roads you should probably avoid, if you can.
U.S. Route 1
Research from 2015 to 2019 found that Florida’s section of the highway is one of the deadliest roads in America. In total, 87 people died between those years. The entire highway runs along the east coast of Florida, but is mainly known for the stretch that connects to the Florida Keys.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise. AAA says I-4 between Daytona Beach and Tampa, Florida, was once the deadliest highway in America, with roughly 1.41 deaths per mile on the highway. Every local and tourist has experienced the nightmare that is I-4 when it runs through Orlando.
