Monmouth County Roads Rank as Most Dangerous in New Jersey

Monmouth County Fatal Car CrashesMonmouth County is one of the most dangerous areas in the state for drivers, according to statistics released by the New Jersey State Police. According to stats compiled by law enforcement across NJ, Monmouth County was the site of 45 fatal car accidents in 2015. That figure represented the most fatal car crashes for any county in New Jersey last year.

Six of the fatal car accidents in Monmouth County last year occurred on Route 18, a 43-mile-long highway that begins in Wall NJ and ends in Piscataway NJ. The entire portion of Route 18 that runs through Monmouth County is a limited-access freeway. The fact that the highway does occasionally intersect with cross-streets means that collisions may be more likely than on other highways in the state.

Some NJ traffic safety experts may have been surprised to learn that the largely suburban Monmouth County was followed by rural Burlington County when it came to the total number of fatal motor vehicle accidents last year. According to NJ State Police stats, there were 43 fatal car crashes in Burlington County in 2015. By contrast, the areas with the fewest traffic fatalities last year were Hunterdon County and Warren County: each county had just eight fatal auto accidents in 2015.

Across New Jersey, there were 562 traffic fatalities in 523 fatal car accidents last year. This figure includes fatalities from pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles. This represented a slight uptick over the total number of auto accident fatalities in 2014, according to data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Moreover, 2016 figures to be even worse for NJ motorists: in the first nine months of the year, 407 people died in fatal auto accidents. That’s why it is especially important that anyone operating a motor vehicle in Monmouth County or anywhere else in New Jersey exercise caution. In the event that you or a person you love is seriously injured in a car accident, you should speak with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney and explore your legal options for getting compensated.
