In the United States, nearly half of the nation’s highway is in the state of California.
That’s a whopping 13% of the total highway.
California has a population of around 6.7 million people, and the state has more than half the number of people killed on U.S. roads each year than any other state.
California is also the state with the highest number of vehicle fatalities per capita.
That number is 10.2.
The top three states for the number are New York (11.7), Massachusetts (10.2) and California (10).
As a result of this high number of accidents, the state was named the most dangerous state in the country in 2015 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
California is also ranked as the most expensive state in America in 2016.
