The Deadliest Driving Areas

/ Car Accident, Driver Safety /

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Americans strive to make their lives easier and safer every day. At least, that’s what we hope for when we turn the ignition and head out on the roads. Unfortunately, crashes remain one of the leading causes of premature death in the country and several studies aim to find out why.

The Auto Insurance Center began analyzing data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to find out which counties were the deadliest and which counties were the safest for drivers in America.

Researchers concluded the East Coast “seems to be a haven of safety,” noting the safest counties in the country usually have lower speed limits.

Buffalo car accident attorneys say speed is often a factor in crashes and statistics consistently show a direct correlation between speed and safety.

“Northeast states typically maintain speed limits of no higher than 65 miles-per-hour, which is the case on the I-90 outside Buffalo,” car accident attorney Ross Cellino said. “States is the south and west enforce speed limits as high as 80 miles-per-hour and those states tend to have more accidents per capita.”

Researchers concluded that rural areas were the greatest concern for drivers despite intimidating driving scenarios in city traffic. Researchers said when high speeds are combined with varied terrain and limited local resources, it makes conditions ripe for dangerous and even deadly car crashes.
