Car Crashes in Mississippi

Each year, the state has the highest vehicle fatality rate in the United States. Nearly 22% of drivers in the state fail to wear seatbelts while traveling in a car. Drunk driving is a serious issue in Mississippi, and an estimated 30% of traffic fatalities in the state are caused by intoxicated motorists.
