The Point Pleasant Patch has recently identified New Jersey's 20 most dangerous roadways for the year of 2012. According to the article, the Patch used data from the New Jersey Department of Transportation to determine which roads had the highest number of crashes for every million miles traveled. A few roadways from Bergen County were on the list. These include the following:
- 2nd Place--Palisade, Lemoine Avenues/Route 67 in Fort Lee (11.13 accidents for every million miles traveled in 2012)
- 3rd Place--Bergen Boulevard/Route 63 in North Bergen (10.81 accidents for every million miles traveled)
- 12th Place--Grand Avenue/Route 93 in Bergen County (7.21 accidents for every million miles traveled)
Route 139U at the Pulaski Skyway Terminus in Jersey City took first place on the list, with 14.59 accidents occurring for every million miles traveled in 2012. In last place (20th place) was Route 185 in Jersey City, which had 5.51 accidents for every million miles traveled in the same year. In analyzing the data, the Point Pleasant Patch noted that the state roadways with the highest crash rates were shorter roads that served as congested New York City access points.
