  1. Highway 6 was built over quite a few graves and many Rabbonim have warned people to avoid travelling on it if possible. Even though it is extremely well designed with lots of state of the art engineering safety features, it has an exceptionally high accident rate. Anyone who travels on it should make sure to say Tefilas HaDerech with lots of kavana.
