Interstate 4 is the most deadly highway in America.

I-4 is one of three Florida highways  — Interstates 10 and 95 are the other two — to make the Top 10 list, according to a study by EverQuote.

Data also found distracted driving is a problem with drivers in the Sunshine State; they use phones on average 1.4 times per trip. EverQuote ranks the state second-worst nationally for phone use while driving.

Although Florida passed a law against distracted driving, it only is a secondary offense and drivers cannot be pulled over if seen only using a digital device.

Info from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was used to compile the list.
