Our hope for this study is that the identification of these troubled spots will increase awareness and hopefully result in a safer Capital Region.- Paul Harding, Managing Partner
Capital Region counties; Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady and Saratoga (PRWEB) June 29, 2017
Albany New York personal injury attorneys Martin, Harding & Mazzotti LLP® recently submitted a FOIL request to the NYSDOT seeking traffic accident data at intersections in four Capital Region counties; Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, and Saratoga from January of 2015 through December of 2016. Martin, Harding & Mazzotti team members then reviewed the data in an effort to identify the most dangerous intersections in the Capital Region. The two years of data included almost 11,000 reports throughout the four counties.
The data was reviewed and consolidated, and each intersection scored based on a weighted formula. The result is a detailed reporting of which local intersections carry a higher risk for Capital Region drivers. The team in charge of the review was also able to extract additional details from the report as well, highlighting the most common accident types, weather conditions, light conditions, roadway surface conditions and even collision type. Managing partner Paul Harding said, “Our hope for this study is that the identification of these troubled spots will increase awareness and hopefully result in a safer Capital Region.”
