Car Accidents in Mississippi
Mississippi is considered to be one of the most dangerous places to drive in the United States due to the continuously high frequency of car deaths in the state. According to government statistics, around 22% of drivers in the state do not use a seatbelt when driving. Speeding and driver inattention are major contributors to fatal and severe accidents in the state.
