Traveling along the highways of Connecticut is a necessity for most drivers within the state. Whether using the highway to commute to work, visiting family members in different cities, or simply taking the quickest route to a destination, highways play a significant role in the overall travel in the state of Connecticut. Unfortunately, however, highway accidents present one of the biggest health threats to all motorists in major cities such as New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport, CT.

Highway travel opens the door to a number of types of accidents, some similar to those which take place on regular roads. However, contrary to the motor vehicle collisions on the streets of Connecticut, highway accidents are typically much more severe. From rollover accidents to side impact collisions, any type of car crash is worsened on the highway, including both accident injuries and property damage.

While some collisions are certainly unavoidable, understanding the amplified level of danger regarding highway accidents will put Connecticut residents in a better position to circumvent a crash. Due to the increases in the speed of travel which highways require, the force of impact in any highway accident is intensified. As a result, the injuries suffered by accident victims are commonly severe, usually requiring medical care.

  • Sign placement
  • Maintenance of roads
  • Weather conditions

Driving on any roads in Connecticut where the posted speed limit is above 50 miles per hour presents an elevated level of risk. While many traffic collisions are sadly unavoidable, being aware of the most dangerous of roads in the state will help drivers to exercise an intensified level of awareness. In doing so, motorists are able to look out for signs of reckless drivers, poorly constructed roadways, and speeding truckers.

  • Route 1
  • Route 5
  • U.S. Highway 6
  • I-95
  • I-91
