Does Florida have a higher rate of car accidents than other states?

Yes. There are a number of ways to measure car accident rates in individual states, but Florida does not rank well. According to a Yahoo analysis of data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Florida was judged the 20th most dangerous state in terms of probability of dying in a car crash. However, for pedestrians and bicyclists, Florida was the most dangerous state in the country.

According to an Everquote analysis, I-4 in Florida is the most dangerous interstate highway in America, with 1.41 fatalities per mile. Two of the other 10 most dangerous interstates, I-95 and I-10, also run through Florida.

Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians need to protect themselves by taking proper safety precautions and obeying the rules of the road.
