Top Five Counties for Traffic Fatalities in North Carolina

Traffic deaths in North Carolina are more likely to occur along rural roads, according to AAA Carolinas. Statistics show that Transylvania, Graham, Alleghany, Gates, and Hyde counties had the most traffic fatalities in North Carolina.

Overall, North Carolina has been ranked the 18th most dangerous state per mile driven, with an average of four people a day dying in car accidents. AAA Carolinas has attributed North Carolina's rural roads for the high number of traffic fatalities, saying, "Rural roads are generally narrower, with lower shoulders, faded or non-existent road markers, more curves and less police presence than major highways."

Traffic_06062014Transportation Secretary Gene Conti said that North Carolina drivers can improve safety by "doing their part by slowing down, paying close attention, never drinking and driving, and always wearing their seatbelts, which is their best defense if they're in a crash."

The safest counties for traffic fatalities in North Carolina were Currituck, Polk, Haywood, Dare, and Cherokee.
