High-traffic areas can lead to high accident rates for vehicles and pedestrians. Improving safety conditions within these regions is a point of emphasis when designing or changing roadways. The accidents that happen underscore why drivers may avoid specific routes. Many highways go through many various cities, forcing more and more vehicles into places that are unaccustomed to the volume of traffic. When auto accidents happen, officials want to understand why, so they can better prevent them in the future.

A New York woman recently pleaded guilty to an accident she caused this past July. Sybil Monk was traveling on Route 5 in Montgomery County when she had a head-on collision with two motorcyclists. The accident killed one and injured three others. Monk was charged with DWI after it was discovered that she was under the influence of prescribed narcotics at the time of the crash.
