We are happy to report that early signs show that Vision Zero has been proven to reduce traffic fatalities in New York City in 2015. Below are some statistics that show improvement since being instituted:
In 2014, there were 252 traffic fatalities in NYC.
In 2015, there were 224 traffic fatalities in NYC.
Fatalities are lower in Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, and in Queens.
Everyone at SSPTMS is so glad that pedestrian safety is improving each and every year in NYC.
