Well this is a not so pleasant honor. Highway 99, which runs almost the entire length of California’s central valley has been named the “Most Dangerous Road in America” by consumer research company ValuePenguin.
According to Value Penguin,” from 2011 to 2015, SR-99 saw 62.3 fatal accidents for every 100 miles, which is the most of any highway in the nation. The numbers are undeniably stark, especially for a highway that is relatively short (length is just about 425 miles).
Fresno was the hardest hit city along Highway 99 with 34 fatal accidents over a four-year period.”
Sorry Elk Grove! You may want to take the 5.
