Federal agency maps areas in county where these tragedies occurred.

Map: 84 Nassau Pedestrians Killed Between 2009, 2011
It's a sobering statistic: 84 pedestrians died on Nassau County roads between 2009 and 2011, numbers from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show, with 14 of those tragic accidents along Hempstead Turnpike, the state's deadliest roadway.

But while Hempstead Turnpike was clearly the most dangerous, other Nassau arteries saw fatal accidents involving pedestrians in that span, including 9 on Route 27 and 5 on Merrick Road.

The remaining 56 fatalities happened across a host of Nassau roads.

The NHTSA has mapped each of those 84 fatalities in the interactive above. Click around the map and let us know in the comments what you think can be done to make local roads safer for pedestrians.
