Connecticut’s most dangerous roads

On Behalf of | Jun 21, 2024 | Car Accidents, Personal Injury, Truck Accidents |

Connecticut may be the third smallest state by area in the United States, but there still are plenty of roadways to travel on and some of them are more dangerous than others for travelers.

Four roadways in Connecticut to watch out for

Some roads are more dangerous than others due to bad design, heavy traffic, construction or even the sun’s orientation at a particular time of year.  Researchers have assembled a list of roads in Connecticut on which collisions causing injuries and deaths occur more frequently:

  1. Interstate 95 (I-95): It’s practically impossible to avoid using this national artery, but Connecticut’s stretch (which runs through New London) is considered one of the deadliest in the state. From 2018 to 2020, eight fatal crashes occurred on I-95 in Connecticut.
  2. State Route 10 (SR-10): The state highway runs between New Haven and the state line near Granby, but the 1.2-mile stretch from Kimberly Avenue to Boston Post Road in New Haven is particularly dangerous.
  3. Interstate 8 (I-8): The area between Exit 10 to Exit 3 from Trumbull to Bridgeport has seen multiple fatal accidents.
  4. U.S. Highway 6: Another highway that crosses the state, this one runs through a mix of commercial areas and picturesque towns. Its eastern portion, from New Haven into Rhode Island, is particularly dangerous.

Not everyone drives safely

Of course, exercising extreme caution while driving is essential. However, other drivers’ recklessness can still cause injuries and fatalities. Victims can hold them accountable by contacting a personal injury attorney with experience in motor vehicle crashes.
