Dangerous Intersections on Long Island

Share

Intersections are often busy with hundreds of vehicle drivers changing speeds, turning, and merging all at once. Pedestrians and bicyclists also use intersections to cross roadways. If intersections aren’t designed to accommodate traffic congestion effectively, or if drivers aren’t paying attention behind the wheel, accidents at intersections can result in significant injuries.

Some intersections in Long Island are more dangerous than others because they’re used more frequently and because they have specific design flaws. Becoming aware of the most dangerous intersections in your area can help you avoid accidents and increase your car safety

If you are injured in a car accident, a Long Island car accident lawyer from Jaghab, Jaghab & Jaghab, PC can help you recover compensation for any damages you suffer.

New Hyde Park Road and Northern State Parkway

New Hyde Park Road and Northern State Parkway is a confusing intersection where car accidents may occur because drivers headed north on New Hyde Park Road that want to go west on Northern State Parkway must cross traffic when turning left to get to the entrance ramp. This entrance ramp runs next to an exit ramp, which can create chaos between drivers going different directions. 

Old Country Road and Wantagh Parkway

Similar to the intersection at New Hyde Park Road and Northern State Parkway, drivers headed east on Old Country Road who want to go south on Wantagh Parkway must make a left at the intersection and cross traffic to get to the entrance ramp of the parkway. There’s also an exit ramp to Wantagh parkway in the same area, which can cause drivers to get confused and collide with one another. 

Hempstead Turnpike and Wantagh Parkway

Accidents at intersections in Long Island often occur because drivers get confused and go up exit ramps or down the wrong way on one-way streets. A driver wanting to go south on Wantagh Parkway after driving east on Hempstead turnpike must take Bellmore Road to reach the Parkway’s entrance ramp.

Bellmore Road has a stop sign near the entrance ramp, and accidents can occur if a confused or distracted driver turns right at the stop sign and heads into oncoming traffic. 

Round Swamp Road and Northern State Parkway

The entrance and exit ramps of Northern State Parkway off Round Swamp Road are next to one another and divided only by a double yellow line. With a significant change in speed limits between the two roads, accidents can occur on and near these exit and entrance ramps.
