Hempstead Turnpike Named Most Dangerous Road for Pedestrians in the Tri-State Area

According to the Long Island Press, Hempstead Turnpike was named the most dangerous road for pedestrians in the tri-state area for the third year in a row. Tri-State Transportation, a nonprofit transportation policy watchdog group, released statistical analysis demonstrating that between 2007 and 2009, 12 pedestrians were killed along a 16-mile stretch of the turnpike. Most of the fatalities were recorded in Elmont, Franklin Square and Hempstead.

The report showed that around 415 pedestrians are killed in downstate New York, New Jersey and Connecticut every year. The second most dangerous road was Broadway in Manhattan with 11 pedestrian fatalities. The group calls for roads to be designed with pedestrians and bicyclists in mind. New York personal injury lawyers agree that certain precautions must be taken when designing a road to ensure the safety of pedestrians.
