THE BRONX - A new report has named the most dangerous roads in the borough for pedestrians.

According to the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, East Gun Hill Road, the Grand Concourse, Fordham Road and White Plains Road are the worst for people traveling on foot.

Some residents complain that there isn't enough time to safely walk across many busy intersections, and they aren't surprised by the findings.

Neighbors say they have seen improvements on Gun Hill Road since Decatur Street became one-way six months ago.

Experts advocate making dangerous roads safer by installing pedestrian countdown signals and keeping crosswalks well-marked.
