Dangerous NJ Roads

The most dangerous NJ roads were narrowed down to ten after statistics from 2014 were tallied. A report was released by the New Jersey Department of Transportation. It is a compilation of information from state and local officials, as well as multiple agencies. They are projected to be used by engineers, planners, and planners to improve conditions. You can read about it here.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 130

From Route 38 to Myrtle Avenue, in Pennsauken, has had 136 crashes. Potholes can be such a problem that Pennsauken Township has posted about ways to report them, their cause and how to discern which roads are Municipal or county. You can read more about them here(http://www.twp.pennsauken.nj.us/content/how-report-pot-holes-found-pennsauken). This route is actually considered a county street.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 46

Between Browertown Road and Notch Road, Little Falls, there have been 142 crashes. Notch Road had a bridge closure, earlier this year, as well. The minor inconvenience was the beginning of a four-month repair that is still banging away at the connection between Little Falls and Woodland Park.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 130

New Albany Road to Rancocas Creek, between Delran and Delanco, has seen 143 crashes. This mention on the list should be no surprise to anyone who is in the area, whether you have driven it or not. The highway made headlines when some students sought a lower speed limit for the stretch of road that was referenced.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 9

From Pond Road to Covered Bridge Boulevard, in Manalapan, there have been 155 crashes. Just looking at it on a map, you might not see it. But, this area is problematic enough to be considered the seventh most dangerous road in New Jersey. Proceed with caution if you are using it and be sure to pay attention to your surroundings.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 1

From Pulaski Skyway, Broadway to Route 139, in Jersey City, with 194 crashes. There have been attempts to repair the damage done on Pulaski highway, which has caused inconvenience for commuters. Whether that has affected the numbers here or not is unclear. But, being six on this list is no prize to be won, and it must say something about that stretch.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 1

Between Quaker Bridge Road to Alexander Road, West Windsor, has seen 218 crashes. A different stretch of the same road, this area is notorious and should be tread lightly. Be sure to observe all traffic signs and drive at the speed limit. These signs communicate to you the recommendations for that road. This is definitely one time you will want to pay attention and follow them.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 27

Stuart Place to Thompson Avenue between Linden and Roselle, 219 crashes. Again, you will want to pay attention to the road signs and follow them strictly. Over two hundred people died on this road, in 2014. That is almost one person per day. That can’t mean that all of these people were driving recklessly or speeding. This is not a road to take chances with.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 17

From Powers Drive to Linwood Avenue, Paramus has had 231 crashes. The two miles of highway, on this route, is in Paramus and is the most dangerous part of the road. Claiming over two hundred lives and the third highest body count in the state, this section should be taken seriously when it is necessary to travel.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 37

Thomas Street to Barnegat Bay, Thomas River, 236 crashes. Whether it is the bridge or some construction, there is no telling exactly what can cause problems for you on this street. You just have to keep your eyes focused on the road and drive at a cautious speed.

Dangerous NJ Roads: Route 22

Jefferson Avenue to Madison Avenue, Union Township, 246 crashes. Number one on the list of dangerous NJ roads, you shouldn’t take this road unless it is unavoidable. Plan an alternate route or travel with extreme caution, but note that there are a large number of people who have not survived this road. There must be a reason, and you don’t want to find out what it is.

This list of dangerous NJ roads is one example of the dangers that come with traffic and roads that need repair. There are plenty of other reasons for traffic violations, but that is something you should discuss with the attorney handling your case. They will answer any questions you may have about your traffic violation and your case. They can also tell you what steps you need to take next and what your likely outcome will be. Having a lawyer with experience represent you will make your life and your court requirements a lot easier. Representing yourself, even in a traffic violation, is a dangerous risk to take. You are playing with your future and freedom. That’s not a mistake you can afford to make right now.
