The highway is state-owned and controlled.
Other dangerous Garden State highways named by the transportation group were the Black Horse Pike in Atlantic County, Route 1 in Middlesex County, Route 549 in Ocean County, Route 1 and Route 9 in Union County, and the White Horse Pike (Route 30) in Atlantic County.
Across the tri-state region, Route 130 retained its ranking as the third most-deadly highway, behind the Hempstead Turnpike in Nassau County, N.Y., (12 deaths) and Broadway in New York City (11).
Route 1 & 9 is a disaster and I am surprised that Route 22 is not on the list, but I really thought that in the Tri-State area New York City would take the top spot. There are some really wide streets where the Don’t Walk light starts flashing just a couple steps off the curb. If there is a crowd crossing, I always try to position myself on the side of the crowd opposite oncoming cars so at least I have a buffer. I find it amazing that I still see people crossing between lights and when the Don’t Walk sign is lit. Don’t be a cavalier pedestrian on wide, busy roads. It could be hazardous to your health.
