What could be more American than taking a good old road trip through the barren patch of earth known as U.S. Highway 93, from Wickenburg to Las Vegas.

Along the 200-mile stretch, the most dangerous segment is in Mohave County, Arizona—where 70 fatal crashes reportedly occurred between 2010 and 2016.

Elsewhere in the Grand Canyon State, Interstate 10 and State Road 95 (the road between Yuma and I-40) rank 12th and 33rd overall for their dangerous conditions, according to the report.
