With beautiful landscapes and thriving communities, many enjoy living in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Yet with so much activity, there are areas that are known as traffic accident hotspots. Recognizing where these areas are and taking steps to navigate them safely can help reduce the risk of collisions. Should an accident occur despite your best efforts, know that a skilled Bucks County personal injury attorney can support your pursuit of damages.

Be Aware of Accident-Prone Areas

While it’s important to drive with caution everywhere, being attuned to areas where accidents statistically occur more often can help when adopting safe driving behaviors.

  • Route 1, also known as Lincoln Highway. Route 1 is a major thoroughfare that sees heavy traffic, especially during rush hours. The intersections at Route 1 and Street Road, and Route 1 and Route 413, are particularly notorious for frequent collisions due to high traffic volumes and complex traffic patterns.
  • Interstate 95. Running through Bucks County, I-95 is a major route for commuters and long-haul drivers. The stretch near Bristol and the interchanges with Route 413 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike are common sites for accidents.
  • PA 132, also known as Street Road. In Particular, intersections of Route 1 and Bustleton Pike are high-risk areas. Heavy commercial traffic, numerous traffic signals, and multiple lanes contribute to a higher incidence of rear-end collisions and side-impact crashes.
  • Route 611, also known as Easton Road. Route 611 runs through several towns in Bucks County and sees a significant amount of traffic. Especially dangerous regions have frequent congestion and complex traffic signals.

Avoid distractions, such as mobile phones, wherever you are driving and follow posted speed limits, which are set to ensure safety in high-risk areas. Speeding increases the likelihood of accidents and the severity of injuries.

It is also important to keep a safe following distance from the vehicle in front of you to allow adequate time to react to sudden stops and signal your intentions well in advance to alert other drivers. Turn signals are key to navigating complex intersections and successfully merging lanes.
