Led by Texas, Southern States top the list with the most fatal crashes according to new interactive crash map commissioned by Nextbase Dash Cams
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Southern United States is home to four of the five worst states for fatal crashes, according to a new interactive crash map commissioned by Nextbase, the world's leading dash cam brand. Led by Texas, the five states with the most fatal crashes also include California, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.
"Our goal at Nextbase continues to be leveraging technology and data in order to help keep drivers safer on the roads," said Bryn Brooker, Head of Road Safety for Nextbase. "Through data analysis and visualization, the Nextbase Interactive Crash Map is a powerful tool to make the NHTSA data more accessible, educating American drivers and, we hope, inspiring them to place greater focus and effort on safe driving."
The Nextbase Interactive Crash Map – which brings to life the latest available data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) – allows users to easily view fatal crash counts across the United States by locality (state, county, region) and time period (week, day, second), raising awareness of the dangers we all face when stepping into a vehicle.
Nextbase's analysis of the 39,500 crashes reported by NHTSA during 2021 found that 4,068 fatal crashes occurred in the state of Texas, with local law enforcement reporting to 330 each month.
Additionally, Nextbase's analysis found Houston, Texas to be the most dangerous city to drive in, with 324 fatal crashes, and Los Angeles County to be the most dangerous county to drive in, with 770 fatal crashes reported over 12 months.
