Editors of a popular website say one notorious highway in the Garden State is the most dangerous road in New Jersey.

Consider this: according to federal statistics, the average person in New Jersey will drive 12,263 miles in a year (I thought it would have been higher than that). Obviously, that's about a thousand miles per month.

That's less than our neighbors in Pennsylvania and New York and about the same as people in Delaware.

Oddly enough, those living in Wyoming seem to be living in their cars as each person in that state drives over 24,000 miles per year.

So with millions of New Jerseyans driving on New Jersey roads and highways every day, what is the most dangerous road here?
