Check out our latest blog post on the current state of Long Island roadways:

The Current State of Long Island Roadways

As an emergency responder I have had the unfortunate experience of seeing in detail the destructive and sometimes fatal car accidents that have become a common theme on todays Long Island roads. Car accidents (some serious, some not) happen every single day on our roads and are becoming increasingly predictable. This leads us to ask ourselves whether or not there is a common theme amongst these accidents, or if they are mostly isolated incidents? How do these accidents really happen? There are several theories which I will explain in detail:

Theory #1: there are too many cars (and drivers) on the road

Long Islands roadways both in Nassau and Suffolk county have undoubtedly become more congested over the years. Some feel that this has to do with a lack of legitimate public transportation on Long Island; LIRR rates have gone up significantly in recent years and LIRR stations are often not convenient to travel to. Even in towns that have LIRR stations, many residents have to drive from their home to the station to avoid a 15-20 minute walk. The same can be said for bus stations; when you have to drive 5 to 10 minutes to the nearest bus or train station, there becomes much less incentive to use public transportation. Add to the fact that most towns ticket non-residents for parking in their LIRR station’s parking lots and the incentive becomes diminished even further. Some also have expressed concern that there is not enough incentive to promote carpooling on Long Island; only the LIE has an HOV lane and Park and Ride stops to reward carpoolers for commuting together whereas the Northern and Southern parkways do not.

Theory #2: the speed limit is poorly set

Have you ever driven 55 MPH in the left lane of any of the major parkways on Long Island? I’m willing to bet that what will happen within 2 minutes is the following: a myriad of angry (and often colorful) drivers begin to violently pull out from behind you, cut you off and continue on their travels at around 65-75 MPH. This tells us 1 of 2 things; either the majority of our drivers are irresponsible, or our speed limits are simply too low. Picture the following scenario: traffic is flowing at 65-70 MPH, which is typical for all major parkways on Long Island. Car A is traveling at 55 MPH in the left hand lane, and Car B is behind Car A trying to pass to travel with the flow of traffic. Although obeying the speed limit, Car A has created a dangerous scenario by impeding the flow of traffic. Frustrated at the disruption in traffic flow, Car B makes several attempts to move into the middle lane, often cutting off other drivers to get there. This creates a dangerous scenario that is the cause of accidents every day. In addition to the speed limit being low comparable to the rest of the country, it is also inconsistent. How do we explain the speed limit of the LIE being the same as the speed limit on route 347? 347 is peppered with traffic lights, storefronts and residences yet it has the same maximum speed limit as 495. Many feel that these low speed limits are in place for ticketing revenue purposes as opposed to safety, and driving just a few minutes on any Long Island highway would explain why a low speed limit is not necessarily a safe one.

Theory # 3: Many drivers have bad driving habits

With the rapid advancement of technology, notably small electronics, it can be argued that drivers today are more distracted than ever before. GPS systems, smart phones, and hi-tech media features available in some cars today create diversions for drivers that can be highly dangerous. While the LIE (495) has implemented “It Can Wait” text messaging stops along stretches of the highway, other long island parkways and roadways have again fallen short of messaging stop is the best (or even a good) solution, but it is at least a realization of a major doing much to address these issues. This is not to say that everyone would agree a text problem on our roadways and an attempt at fixing it. Other prominent bad driving habits exist simply due to lack of situational awareness on the road. Tailgating is one of the most prominent and dangerous bad driving habits that occurs on Long Island roadways and can be attributed to accidents on a daily basis. Not leaving enough space between yourself and the car in front of you severely reduces available reaction time if the driver in front were to stop short or maneuver quickly. 

At Winkler, Kurtz & Winkler we strive to promote good driving habits. As such, we are hosting our annual FREE Defensive Driving Class on 9/20/14 at the Stony Brook Holiday Inn. We invite everyone to join us to save money on their car insurance, reduce up to 4 points on their license, and learn invaluable driving techniques that can help keep you safe on the road. For more information or to sign up for the class, call us at (631) 928-8000 or email Ralph@WinklerKurtz.com.

Ontario is widening a seven-kilometre stretch of Highway 427 from Campus Road-Fasken Drive to Steeles Avenue to improve traffic flow and safety in the Greater Toronto Area, while creating or sustaining 830 construction jobs.

The project includes:

• Repairing, repaving and expanding the section of Highway 427 from five to eight lanes
• Building one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction
• Repairing eight bridges
• Installing new high-mast lighting and median barriers 
• Construction is targeted for completion by fall 2017.

Improving highways, roads and bridges across the province is a key part of the government's economic plan to invest in people, create jobs, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

Police Seek Driver in Hit-and-Run Accident: California Highway Patrol is investigating a hit-and-run accident that killed a pedestrian on Monday, August 11. Around 12:15 a.m., witnesses report that a man was running alongside the highway near East Plaza Boulevard. He was crossing from the median to the side of the northbound lane when an unidentified vehicle struck him, and then fled the scene. The man’s body was also struck by a Toyota 4Runner and thrown into the HOV lane. Police pronounced him dead at the scene. The Toyota driver stayed and cooperated with authorities, but the driver of the first car has not been identified. Reckless motorists often flee the scene to avoid being arrested for alcohol or drug use. If police cannot prove a hit-and-run driver was impaired, he or she may only face minor traffic charges.
