About US 206 in New Jersey
U.S. Route 206 is the third longest highway in New Jersey, trailing after the Garden State Parkway and U.S. Route 9. Only about half a mile of the northernmost part of Pennsylvania is served by US 206, and much of this route runs through New Jersey as it makes its way down to Hammonton, NJ over a few old state highways.
Much of the route’s length, also called the Disabled American Veterans Highway, is a rural undivided road with two lanes, stretching through the Pine Barrens and the Appalachian Mountains of the northwest of the state. US 206 links several towns and cities, including Trenton, Bordentown, Princeton, Somerville, Newton, and Netcong.
New Jersey US 206 Accidents
Portions of US 206 are notoriously dangerous for motorists and pedestrians, and have been the scene of many serious and fatal accidents. Many large commercial trucks such as tractor-trailers, cement trucks, tanker trucks, 18-wheelers, and semi trucks use this local route as a long-distance truck route. This is mainly because US 206 provides a toll-free and more direct route through the western part of the state. These large, long-distance trucks driven by fatigued truckers share the highway with local traffic on 206. When this mixed traffic is combined with multiple driveways that often lack left-turn lanes, you have a recipe for road disaster.
Highway truck accidents that occur on US 206 happen for a number of reasons, including aggressive driving, driver fatigue, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, overweight trucks, improperly loaded trucks, poorly maintained trucks, poor road conditions, insufficiently-skilled drivers, and the trucking company’s negligence.
Compensation claims for injuries or death resulting from highway truck accidents are generally complex due to several potentially liable parties involved, who would commonly point liability to each other.
