Dangerous Roads

Transportation planners recently revealed that Princeton-Hightstown Road/Route 571 has 50% more accidents than similar roads in New Jersey.

Joseph Sun wrote the WWBPA and local newspapers with his nomination for another danger spot in town: the intersection of Scott Avenue and Alexander Road near Brothers Pizza. “The red-brick pavement there gives pedestrians and cyclists the impression that they have the right of way. Yet motorists zoom through the intersection. I recommend that we have four-way stop signs there.”

One list West Windsor and Mercer County didn’t make is Tri-State Transportation Campaign’s ranking of the most dangerous roads for walking in New Jersey, based on pedestrian fatalities from 2006 through 2008. Scroll down the breakdown by county to see where the 13 were in Mercer County and the 49 were in Middlesex County. The most dangerous road? Route 130 in Burlington County.
