The Pedestrian Safety Action Plan was created to identify the existing safety conditions and to recommend changes that can be finished over the next five years. Improvements will involve installing signs and noticeable light beacons, as well as creating refuge islands and curb extensions for wider streets.
More than 300 pedestrian deaths and 15,000 injuries happen each year in New York State due to being hit by motor vehicles. The importance of this safety plan is evident, as pedestrian injuries and deaths continue to occur.
