Accident-prone roads in New Jersey to avoid

On Behalf of | Apr 10, 2023 | Car Accidents

Are you the type of person that likes to minimize risk across different areas of your life? If you are, it may be possible to lower your odds of being injured in a car accident just by knowing which roads pose high crash risks.

Even experienced, confident drivers should try to avoid high-risk roadways when possible. After all, not everyone you share the road with cares about the safety of others and may involve you in an accident.

U.S. Route 130

The Burlington County portion of Route 130 has taken the lives of many vehicle occupants and pedestrians over the years. According to one source, this highway saw 10 fatal motor vehicle accidents from 2018 through 2021. Another source explained that factors like poor visibility and a lack of crosswalks, sidewalks and medians contribute to accidents on Route 130.

Other infamously dangerous New Jersey roads

Unless you plan to stay close to home, there is a good chance you will travel on other state-located roads at some point. To minimize your accident risk, avoid the following roadways or use them with an extra dose of caution.

  • U.S. Route 40 from West End through Noah’s Road
  • I-95 from exit 74 through to the Vince Lombardi Travel Plaza
  • SR 21 from Miller Street to 4th Avenue
  • I-80 from Exit 55B to Exit 60
  • I-95 in the short span between exits 13 and 14

Reducing your risk of an accident is always wise, but you cannot control the driving behaviors of other people. Unfortunately, this means you retain at least some danger of sustaining injuries in a crash. Consider seeking guidance to maximize your compensation if someone injures you in a car accident.
