- Harbor Boulevard in Orange County Harbor Boulevards, which is 23 miles long, goes from the Newport Beach area to the San Gabriel Valley foothills. It is one of the busiest thoroughfares in Orange County, and so it is no surprise that it is also one of the deadliest. In 2016, this short stretch of road saw 600 injuries and five fatalities.
- Madison Avenue in Sacramento County Running just ten miles between the McClellan Airport and Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, Madison Avenue is home to many collisions. In 2016 there were 300 injuries involving vehicle accidents on this stretch, with five fatal accidents.
- Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles County From downtown L.A. to the Pacific Ocean, Sunset Boulevard is just 22 miles long but was the location of four fatal accidents and 600 injuries in 2016. It started as a cattle trail back in the 18th century but today is known as a popular spot for thrill-seekers, thanks to the dips and swells.
- Camden Avenue in Santa Clara County Just ten miles from South San Hose to the San Tomas Expressway, Camden Avenue crosses two different thoroughfares: State Route 85 and Almaden Expressway. This portion of the road is part of Vision San Jose, which is designed to reduce fatal car accidents and make roads safer. Hopefully, it will be successful and the five average fatalities each year will be reduced to zero. There are also an average of 40 injuries per year.
