Garden State Parkway Accident Lawyers
The Garden State Parkway (GSP) welcomes tourists, travelers and drivers across New Jersey. This transportation artery spans more than 172 miles from the New York state line at Montvale to the southernmost tip of New Jersey. The Parkway was built in 1947 and is managed by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority. While trucks and commercial vehicles are prohibited north of Exit 105 at Asbury Park, car and pedestrian accidents are common throughout the 172-mile highway. High-speed crashes related to distracted driving and unsafe speeds are common, particularly during Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day. Some common causes of accidents on the Garden State Parkway are:
- Toll plaza incursions
- Unsafe lane changes
- Excessive speeds
- Distracted driving/texting while driving/cell phone use
- Aggressive driving
- Alcohol use/drunk driving
As aggressive car accident lawyers, we take note of the troubling statistics for fatal car accidents on the Garden State Parkway. Middlesex, Essex and Monmouth counties have a disproportionate rate of fatal car and truck accidents. In 2011, 11 deaths from automobile and truck accidents occurred on the GSP in Essex County. This includes two pedestrians, four passengers and five drivers. Middlesex had five fatalities during the same period, including four drivers and one passenger being killed in car and truck collisions.
