South Jersey’s Deadliest Roads for Walking: New Study, Same Results
A new report released Wednesday on the most dangerous roads for pedestrians in New Jersey, shows two South Jersey roads have remained among the most deadly over the last three year period.
According to the study, the most deadly roads in Atlantic County continue to be the Black and White Horse Pikes, Routes 40 and 30, between the Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City.
According to the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, a safety advocacy group, 12 out of the 22 pedestrians who died in Atlantic County between 2010 and 2012, were killed along the Black Horse Pike and White Horse Pike, tying the roadways for the dubious distinction of the State's fourth most deadly roads.
In Cape May and Cumberland Counties, Route 47 accounted for seven deaths during that three-year period, making it New Jersey's eighth most dangerous for pedestrians.
