Still Deadly! Black Horse Pike Remains One of NJ’s Most Dangerous Roads

YouTube

Here’s some news that really isn’t news to anyone in South Jersey.  The Black Horse Pike is one of the most dangerous and deadly… roads for pedestrians in New Jersey.

According to the annual report from the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, a safety advocacy group monitoring roads in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, the Black Horse Pike in Atlantic County is one of the four deadliest roads in the State.

Statistics show nine pedestrians died on the Black Horse Pike between 2009 and 2011 and 18 have died since 2005 .

This dubious distinction ties Black Horse Pike with three other Jersey roads for the most deadly. See the complete report.

If this report is causing you to experience deja vu, it’s because we’ve heard it before.  Year after year, the Black Horse Pike in Atlantic County remains an accident waiting to happen for pedestrians and motorists alike. Yet nothing seems to be done to make it any safer.  Many sections of the Pike still have no sidewalks, many pedestrians continue to cross at non-designated places and dangerously obsolete center lane-turn-offs still challenge drivers.

What’s the real purpose of a study about dangerous roads if nothing is ever done to lessen the danger?
