Second on the list is Route 206. There were 12 deadly crashes on that road in 2014. Route 130 and Route 1 were tied with 10 deadly accidents apiece.
Route 130 stretches through five counties in the state, from Middlesex to Salem County. Out of the 10 deadly accidents on Route 130, five of them happened in Burlington County.
Many drivers who spoke to News 12 New Jersey say they believe there are too many cars and not enough space on New Jersey roads.
"Fifty years ago there was one car to a household," says driver Ben Parekkadan. "Now a household has four to five cars."
Other motorists say many of the roads have "stop-and-go" traffic and traffic lights that interrupt the flow of traffic, leading to many accidents.
