If you could (somehow) avoid certain areas on our Dallas-Fort Worth highways, you might be safer. That’s the conclusion of a new traffic study.
Sections of eight DFW roads were the sites of almost 200 deaths in 2015, adding to the dismal total that makes Texas the #1 ranked state for traffic fatalities in the U.S.
So which of our highways are the worst?
The misspelling on the sign is a clue as to North Texas’s #1’s most frightening road — and the area near mile marker 124 on I-30 just east of downtown Fort Worth is almost the deadliest place to drive in the entire state of Texas.
Stretches of Interstates 35, 20, and 635 and US Highway 175 in our Dallas-Fort area were also deadly. Here’s the list:
