Route 25 in Suffolk County Ranked Worst in Long Island for Pedestrian Deaths
While Brooklyn leads the 5 boroughs in pedestrian deaths, a new report shows that Route 25 in Suffolk County is the deadliest road for pedestrians in the Tri-State area. According to the report, 20 pedestrians were killed on Route 25 between 2011 and 2013, which is almost double the amount than the second ranked road, the Hempstead Turnpike in Nassau County. According to the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, Route 25 presents many obstacles to pedestrians, such as crumbling sidewalks and long gaps in between crosswalks. Both pedestrians and drivers need to be aware of their surroundings at all times, and if you find yourself involved in such an accident, please contact a Long Island traffic attorney.
