The Tri-State Campaign for Transportation (TSTC) released the Most Dangerous Roads for Walking Report (3/7/2012) revealing the most dangerous roads in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.
The report, available to New York auto accident lawyers as well as the public, analyzed federal data from 2008 to 2010. “The goal now is to get those most dangerous roads for walking off the most dangerous list,” said New York auto accident lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s auto accident law firms.
According to the TSTC report, the five most dangerous New York City roads for pedestrians: 1. Broadway (Manhattan), with 13 pedestrians killed from 2008-2010. 2. Broadway (The Bronx), 7 killed. 3. Kings Highway (Brooklyn), with 7 killed 4. Henry Hudson Parkway (Manhattan), 7 killed 5. Atlantic Avenue (Brooklyn) 7 killed Based in its findings, the TSTC recommended that New York make pedestrian safety a policy and investment priority; track and monitor policies to ensure that roads safely accommodate bicyclists, pedestrians, transit riders, and motorists of all ages and abilities; and preserve and expand federal programs that provide significant funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects.
“Any measures that make New York’s safer for pedestrians is welcomed,” New York auto accident lawyer Perecman said. “Given the high number of people who choose not to drive in New York, our streets should rank among the most pedestrian-friendly in the world.” If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a bus accident or auto accident in New York, please contact the New York auto accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm.
