If you live in Ohio, you’re familiar with the dynamic weather we get throughout the year. In an instant, we begin at summer and rapidly move into a dangerously icy winter!
Life-time Ohioans seem to adjust easily between sunshine and treacherous winter storms, but for unfamiliar drivers it can be a recipe for disaster.
By August 2015, Ohio car accident fatalities reached a devastating number of 665.
Authorities and statistics often look at what caused these deadly accidents, but what we often seem to overlook is where these accidents occur.
Based on ODOT’s studies of over 300 locations, they have identified the highest accident-prone areas in the state of Ohio.
As of ODOT’s 2015 statistics, these are the top 8 accident-prone areas in Northeast Ohio:
- Dead Man’s Curve
- I-480 over Broadway Ave
- I-90 east near I-71, SR 176 split
- I-490 west at SR 176
- SR 8 between Perkins St and SR 261
- I-76, west of SR 8
- I-77 north between SR 224 and I-76
- I-90, north of I-71
When you are on the road—no matter what type of weather we encounter—you must always be cautious and vigilant!
