Most Dangerous Places To Drive In Fayetteville
According to a study of fatal car accidents between 2018 and 2020, Cumberland County had the fourth-highest fatal crash rate statewide. However, that same study found that the deadliest stretch of road in North Carolina is located in Fayetteville.
The unfortunate distinction goes to a nearly five-mile stretch of Cliffdale Road, specifically the section that runs between Beverly Drive and Landsdowne Road. During the three years studied, that section of Cliffdale saw 10 car accidents, resulting in 11 deaths.
It should come as no surprise that Interstate 95 is also identified as one of the most dangerous roads in or running through Fayetteville, due to its high speeds and high volume of traffic. There are about 24 car accident deaths per year on the stretch of I-95 that runs through North Carolina.
Many Car Accidents Are Caused By Driver Negligence
Most auto accidents are not “accidents” in the strictest sense. They are both foreseeable and preventable. In recent years, the three top causes or contributing factors in fatal car accidents were:
- Drunk driving (23%)
- Speeding (25%)
- Texting and distracted driving (7%)
Those numbers reflect only fatal accidents. The number of drivers injured by drunk driving, speeding and distracted driving is likely many times higher. When our attorneys investigate crashes, we look for evidence of these and other dangerous behaviors. Our goal is to prove that the other – and only the other driver – was at fault for the crash.
