Driving safely from one destination to another is something we take for granted each and every day. Driving is one of the most dangerous means of transportation and the most common.

In New Jersey, there are a few roads that tend to see some “action” more than others and are said to be the most dangerous or deadly in the entire state. If you’ve lived in the state long enough, you know that New Jersey drivers are from another planet.
