Some Accidents Result From Dangerous Roads And Highways
Connecticut and New York highways and roads are dangerous places. Not only do you have to drive defensively to avoid car accidents, the road itself may present unforeseen hazards.
Crowded and congested roadways in the Stamford, Connecticut, area lead to many car accidents and truck accidents. Interstate 95 runs through downtown Stamford, and Route 1 is an alternate route when I-95 gets backed up. The southbound lanes of the Merritt Parkway are most congested in the morning, while the northbound lanes are crowded after work, with poor highway lighting.
