"This report puts an exclamation point on the need for safety on our roadways and should bring some prioritization on the state and federal level for funding to implement some safer roadway plans," Alexander says.
Hempstead Turnpike and Merrick Road in Nassau County and Route 110 in Suffolk were also in the report's top 10.
