in Theme Parks, Travel, Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World

I-4, the major highway stretching through Central Florida that connects Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort, has been named the deadliest highway in the country according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to the data, there were 165 deaths on I-4 between 2011 and 2015. Orlando is home to the deadliest section of the 132-mile road, with 19 of those deaths occurring in the city.

A company known as Teletracnavman created an infographic detailing the unsettling statistics.

Millions of people vacation in Orlando every year, visiting some of the most popular theme parks and attractions in the world, and I-4 is likely the road they travel to get to those attractions.

Hopefully, this data will lead to a drastic change in these statistics and I-4 will not be such a dangerous road to traverse in the future. Until then, please drive safely.
