With more than six million car accidents in the United States each year, it’s clear to see there are significant dangers on the road that can cause life-threatening and fatal injuries. Texas is home to countless fatal accidents each year.
Throughout Texas, dangerous accidents on the highways lead to severe injuries, some of which are catastrophic. If you are a Texas driver, it’s essential to recognize some of the more dangerous highways. While you may be unable to avoid these roads, you should understand how to stay as safe as possible.
The I-45 connects Dallas to Galveston, going through the Conroe and The Woodlands communities. Not only is it one of Texas’s most dangerous highways because of traffic, texting and driving, excessive speeds, and drunk driving, but it also sits on the list of some of the most dangerous roads in the entire country.
According to the Accident Data Center, the I-45 was the most dangerous highway in the nation from 2011 to 2019, averaging 56.5 fatal accidents per every 100 miles.
While the I-10 doesn’t directly impact Conroe and The Woodlands, if you have ever driven on this highway, you know that congestion, speeding, and distractions create many of the dangers you can encounter. This highway is home to hundreds of crashes and a significant number of fatalities (676 deaths from 2010 to 2016).
The 400-mile stretch across Texas connecting San Antonio to Dallas has seen hundreds of accidents over the recent years because of road construction projects and distracted drivers. While it’s another highway that isn’t directly related to Conroe, you should know that this highway can prove to be a real hazard if you’re ever traveling through Dallas.
