On Wednesday, the Tri-State Transportation Campaign released its annual list "The Most Dangerous Roads for Walking." The non-profit advocacy group analyzed data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Fatality Analysis Reporting System in twelve downstate New York counties between 2010 to 2012 to produce the rankings.

There was a big upset this year: Suffolk County's Route 25 (Jericho Turnpike) unseated Nassau County's Route 24 (Hempstead Turnpike), for the dubious title of Downstate New York's Deadliest Road. (Jericho Turnpike claimed 16 lives to Hempstead Turnpike's 12.) Manhattan's Broadway came in third. Nine New York City roads made the overall list.
