Louisiana Portion Of I-10 Ranked Among Most Dangerous Highways In The Country
I-10 is the second darkest interstate, and it's also known for drunk drivers.
A new report from finance website ValuePenguin puts Interstate 10, which runs from California to Florida (including Louisiana), ranking as the number four most dangerous highway in the country.
Research analyst Craig Casazza says, "Almost a quarter of the accidents along I-10 had something to do with a drunk driver, and an even bigger portion in poorly lit areas.”
According to the report, Louisiana has the third most fatal stretch of I-10. The fatality rate is nearly 55 deadly accidents per 100 miles.
The most dangerous portion of I-49, another well known interstate in Louisiana, runs through Shreveport. The most dangerous city for traffic fatalities in Louisiana is New Orleans.
