According to an NYTimes.com article, Suffolk County, New York roads are the most deadly in the State of New York. The report states that the combination of unsafe design, high traffic volume, and speed is what makes the roads so dangerous in Suffolk County, New York.
Some safety advocate groups differ on the potential solutions to make the Suffolk County roads much safer for motorists. One community group believes that widening roads, as suggested by some safety advocates, would only make the streets more dangerous. They claim that widening the county’s most hazardous roads would result in an increase in speed and more fatal accidents.
According to Connie Kepert, the Longwood Alliance president, the data shows that “the wider the road, the faster drivers feel comfortable driving.” Connie Kepert added that some of the roads that were widened in the past increased the number of fatalities after the road widening project was finished. Connie Kepert stated that they believe motorists will be safer by adding medians that separate the oncoming traffic lanes instead of having double yellow lines.
