Drivers in New Hampshire may be surprised to hear that women are more likely than men are to incur serious injuries in an auto accident: 73% more likely, in fact, according to a report from City Lab. The trend was detected as far back as 2011 and continues unabated.
Motorists in New Hampshire and across the U.S. can't always steer clear of drivers who make the roads less safe. However, it's important for drivers to understand that some cities and roadways are more dangerous than others.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has conducted a survey to find out just how widespread the confusion is.
