Car Accidents Caused by Hazardous Roadway Conditions

Each year, thousands of Americans are injured or killed on roads and highways simply due to poor road conditions. Poor conditions can be a result of natural events like flash floods or ice storms, but dangerous conditions can also result from poor upkeep and physical condition. Even though there are state and federal laws in place that require cities to maintain safe roadways, it’s impossible to ensure that every single road is totally safe.

Top 5 Most Dangerous Roads in Mississippi

A 2010 Reader's Digest article revealed the worst, deadliest and the best roads in America. All fifty states were ranked, according to safest roads, most dangerous roads, most scenic roads and most "sensible" roads. In this particular article the top ten states for deadly speeding and DUIs were also listed. The state of Mississippi ranked number six among the top ten states with the deadliest roads. Mississippi also ranked 6th for the deadliest roads for impaired drivers, and 2nd for roads driven at excessive speeds.

In Mississippi, 18.1 percent of all pedestrian deaths occurred on arterial roads.
