According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, northeast cities in the United States, such as Washington, DC, Baltimore, Boston, Providence, Philadelphia, Newark, Hartford, New Haven, Springfield and Worcester are the most hazardous for drivers. According to studies, the crowded congested roads and highways in the northeast cities are the reason there are so many car accidents.
