UTICA, N.Y. (PRWEB) December 14, 2017
Utica, New York personal injury attorneys Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® recently submitted a FOIL request to the NYSDOT seeking traffic accident data in Herkimer and Oneida Counties from January of 2015 through December of 2016. Martin, Harding & Mazzotti team members then reviewed the data to identify the most dangerous intersections in the region. The two years of data, with over 6,000 reports throughout the Counties, was reviewed and consolidated and each intersection scored based on a weighted formula. The result is a detailed reporting of which Utica Area intersections carry a higher risk for 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, “This is an ongoing effort by Martin, Harding & Mazzotti to help raise awareness of problem areas in our communities. We have offices throughout New York and Vermont, and we are working to complete this study in as many locations as possible. Improving safety and awareness in whatever way we can is always our primary goal.”
