A new study from the Tri-State Transportation Campaign has named two major roads that run through Massapequa among the area's most dangerous.
Sunrise Highway and Merrick Road were both on the survey's "Most Dangerous Roads," based on a survey of pedestrian deaths between 2008 and 2010.
Sunrise Highway in Nassau was tied with seven other roads as the sixth most dangerous in the area, while Merrick Road was in a group that finished 26th.
They were the second and third most dangerous roads in Nassau County behind a stretch of Hempstead Turnpike.
None of the fatalities that put Merrick Road on the Nassau County list, occurred in the Massapequa, while there was a pedestrian killed in March 2010 on Sunrise near Broadway and another one killed in Seaford near the Massapequa border.
