1. Interstate 10
Unsurprisingly, the most dangerous stretch of roadway in the state is the local section of I-10. Arizona contains 391 miles of Interstate 10, and 150 miles of this stretch are between the major cities of Tucson and Phoenix, which are the two largest cities in our state. The sheer volume of traffic on this stretch—including the high volume of commercial trucks—mean that it is always one of the deadliest stretches in the state each year.
2. Interstate 40
This high-traffic commerce corridor that runs through Flagstaff is part of the stretch of interstate connecting California to North Carolina. In fact, there were 220 deaths on I-40 in a recent four-year period. Road conditions that range from ice in winter to brush fires in summer exacerbate the dangers of the high volume of commercial trucks that traverse this stretch each day.
3. U.S. Highway 93
According to Arizona News, this stretch of highway between Phoenix and Las Vegas is not only one of the most dangerous roads in the state, but in the country as well. In fact, there were 90 fatalities on this stretch between 2010 and 2016 alone.
4. State Highway 87 (aka Beeline Highway)
This highway’s nickname hints at its source of danger—its twists and turns make it a common site of crashes, and increase the risks of truck rollover accidents. Drivers on this road should exercise extreme caution.
5. Interstate 19
This 63-mile stretch is south of Tucson and stretches all the way to the Mexican border. It is heavily trafficked, and despite the brevity of the stretch, there are nearly a hundred roadside memorials along this section of interstate. There are many factors that may contribute to the high rates of crashes, but experts suspect that the monotonous desert scenery and lack of adequate upkeep are major contributors.Ready to Speak to a Lawyer?
