LAKE GROVE - A road on Long Island is considered one of the most dangerous for pedestrians in the tri-state area.

Route 25 in Suffolk County has been named the most dangerous road for the second year in a row, according to the Tri-State Transportation Campaign. The watchdog group found that between 2011 and 2013, a total of 20 people were killed on the road.

Vision Long Island has been pushing for changes to make our roadways on Long Island safer. Eric Alexander, of Vision Long Island, says the roads need to be more walkable and bikeable, especially in downtown areas.

"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.
