Which Mahwah Roads Are the Most Dangerous? [POLL]
Study cited Route 17 as one of the most dangerous in the county
Over the past two days, Mahwah drivers have been dealing with extra-hazardous conditions on area roadways, thanks to another March snowstorm.
Last month, the Tri-State Transportation Campaign released a study citing Route 17 and Essex Street in Hackensack as the "most dangerous" roadways in the county. Of the 14 pedestrians killed on county roadways in 2011, three were killed on Essex Street, and one on Route 17. From 2009-2011, seven pedestrians were killed on the two roadways.
During the TSTC study period, there were no pedestrian deaths on roadways in Mahwah. But, reports of accidents occurring on roadways throughout the township show that local roads can be hazardous to drivers and pedestrians.
Last week, town legislators discussed an impending study of the Campgaw Road-Seminary Drive intersection that would help determine what safety measures should be put in place at that "dangerous" intersection. According to township officials, a traffic analysis of the intersection has not yet happened.
