The study analyzed raw data gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety
The analysis revealed that there was an average of 1.41 fatalities per

to the high fatality rate.

Speeding, changing lanes without signaling, and other risky driving behaviors
are common factors behind many of the accidents that occur on this highway.

Inquisitr article stating that they are not surprised to hear that the I-4 is so
