NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A transportation group has released its list of the Tri-State area’s most dangerous roads for walking.
The Tri-State Transportation Campaign found that 1,200 pedestrians were killed on roads in Conn., New Jersey and downstate New York between 2009 and 2011.
In New York, the top three most dangerous roads for pedestrians are the Hempstead Turnpike near Fulton Avenue in Nassau County, all of Broadway in Manhattan and the Jericho Turnpike near Middle Country Road in Suffolk County.
Hempstead Turnpike, also known as Route 24, has the dubious distinction of being named the most dangerous road in the Tri-State Area for walking five years running.
Fourteen fatalities of pedestrians were reported on Hempstead Turnpike from 2009 to 2011.
