One of the things that make car accidents in Elizabeth so common is the cyclical layout of its roads. Typically roadways are arranged in grid patterns‚ especially in cities. However‚ Elizabeth—New Jersey’s fourth-largest city‚ located in Union County—did things a little differently with roads that are arranged in a circular pattern centered on the railroad station.

The reason this could have an effect on the number of accidents in the city is that unconventional or confusing road layouts can make it harder for drivers to navigate. In 2011 there were 5 fatal motor vehicle crashes in Elizabeth‚ and the city topped the list with the most fatal accidents in Union County. And just two months into 2012‚ there has already been one fatal crash.

Elizabeth is also a hub for several major roadways and with larger roadways comes higher speeds and an increased probability of an accident.
