THE BRONX - A study released by the Pelham Parkway Preservation Alliance along with state Sen. Jeffery Klein's office (D-Bronx/Westchester) shows that the amount of accidents caused by stationary objects along the parkway is far less than expected.

The study says that less than .5 percent of accidents, 1 out of every 200, between 2000 and 2005 involved hitting an object such as a tree, pole or bench.

Residents in the area who are fighting to keep the trees lining the Pelham Parkway say the study will give them an upper hand against those who want to cut the trees down.
