BROOKLYN - A new report on the most dangerous roads for pedestrians in the tri-state area listed Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn among the worst.

The Tri-State Transportation Campaign says the stretch from Downtown Brooklyn to the Marine Parkway Bridge saw 11 pedestrian deaths between 2012 and 2014.

That's four more deaths than the second-most dangerous road in the borough, Atlantic Avenue, in the same period.

The report suggested local governments lower speed limits to prevent pedestrian deaths.

New York City has already done that, enacting a 25 mph speed limit in the area.
