Rural Roads vs. Phoenix Highways
Auto accidents are just as likely to occur on rural roadways as they are at busy intersections. According to national transportation research group, TRIP, there were 807 traffic fatalities in Arizona in 2009. Of that 807, 314 happened on rural roads. This accounts for almost 40 percent of traffic fatalities that year.
On the other hand, given the high speeds of vehicles involved in car crashes on Arizona highways and interstates, debilitating and serious injuries are usually a result of highway wrecks. Some of the most dangerous highways and state routes in Phoenix include:
- Interstate I-10 in Maricopa County
- Interstate I-17
- State Routes 92 and 179
- Interstate I-10 in Pinal County, between Phoenix and Tucson
- State Highway 93
- Maricopa County’s Indian School Road
