3 NJ Roads Named Most Deadly by Watchdog Group

A new study awards a dubious distinction to three New Jersey roadways.
 
The Tri-State Transportation Campaign finds that from 2009 to 2011, Route 130 in Burlington County, the Blackhorse Pike in Atlantic County and Route 1 in Middlesex County were the most deadly roads for pedestrians.

  Each had nine fatalities during the three-year time period.
 
Route 30 in Camden County and Route 9 in Middlesex County each had eight pedestrian deaths over the same span.
 
The study found 440 pedestrians died on New Jersey roads from 2009 to 2011, a slight increase over the period from 2008 through 2010.
 
The study praised the state for its efforts to make roads safer but is pushing for safety improvements and stiffer penalties for careless drivers who kill or injure pedestrians and bicyclists.
