A Look at South NJ Auto Accident Crash Data Over the Last Decade

In general, auto accidents and related injuries occur with much greater frequency in North New Jersey. South New Jersey such as Camden, Ocean and Burlington County have far lower rates of auto crashes and auto injuries than North New Jersey counties such as Bergen, Essex and Middlesex County. The difference in car accident injury rates is largely due to the fact that counties in the northern half of New Jersey are much more populated than counties in the southern half.

South NJ Auto Crash Data by County

Each year, the New Jersey Department of Transportation releases auto accident crash data which includes overall auto crash numbers as well as injury crash numbers. The data is organized by county. See: New Jersey Department of Transportation, Total Injury Crashes by County Statewide, last updated: 8/8/14.

Below is the data for the following counties in South New Jersey (the largest township/city is indicated).

  • Atlantic County (Atlantic City),
  • Burlington County (Mount Holly),
  • Camden County (Camden, Cherry Hill),
  • Cumberland (Vineland-Millville-Bridgeton),
  • Gloucester (Washington Township), and
  • Ocean (Lakewood Township).

Summary

The top three counties in South New Jersey with the highest rates of auto accidents and injuries are:

  • Ocean County,
  • Camden County, and
  • Burlington County.

In addition, the data clearly highlights a trend. Over the past decade or so, the number of auto accidents and the number of accidents which result in injuries have been decreasing in South New Jersey. The data is current through the 2013 fiscal year. The numbers for 2014 should be released later this year. However, it will certainly be interesting to see if the downward trend continues, especially in light of the problem of cell phone use and driving in New Jersey.
