ELIZABETH - A recent study shows that Route 130 in Burlington County has been New Jersey's most dangerous in recent years.

The Tri-State Transportation Campaign says statistics show 10 pedestrians were killed on Route 130 from 2008 to 2010. That's one more than were killed on Route 1 and 9 in Union County.

The study showed most of the pedestrian deaths on Route 1 and 9 were clustered in Elizabeth.

Other roads that made the top five are Route 1 and Route 35, both in Middlesex County, and Route 28 in Union County. More than 400 pedestrians were killed on New Jersey roads in the three years studied. The number of fatalities dropped from 2009 to 2010, but the Tri-State Transportation Campaign says there was a slight increase last year.
