Driving in Sunny Places is Dangerous

Thinking about sunny California or bright Florida for your next vacation?

Stock up on some car insurance before you get there. As it turns out, they have about 50 times the risk of colder places like Vermont or North Dakota when it comes to "transportation fatalities" -- that's death on wheels to you and me.

Nevada is about 6 times more likely as Vermont, too, though it is still less likely than an average state, being in the bottom half, while Arizona is in the top half of states. Maybe we have alternate sunny places to retire, folks ....
