Vision Zero NY Plan For Safer Streets
Fifty-one people died in traffic fatalities in New York City between in the first three months of 2014, compared to 69 during that period in 2013, all accredited to New York’s Vision Zero reforms.
New York City car accident Lawyer, Paul Ajlouny, hears these tragic stories everyday his phone rings. “Building awareness in New York pedestrians and drivers is definitely the first step to lowering the fatality rate in NYC. ” Paul strongly suggests. “In NYC people jaywalk all the time.
Pedestrians ignore traffic laws, running out in the street with a look of defiance. They cross on a yellow, taking chances, when they know they don’t have time to get across the street before the light changes. They walk in the street alongside the cars.”
This year alone an NYPD cruiser on the upper east side seriously injured a pedestrian near Broadway and 78th street. A young girl in Brooklyn leaving church, was killed by a driver fleeing another accident. A 13 year old girl with down syndrome was killed in a hit-and-run-accident. At least 6 people were hurt when a truck crashed into a Bed-stuy Deli.
It’s obvious that many people ignore basic safety rules. Police officers don’t enforce basic traffic expectations. NYC commercial cars, trucks,taxis and buses, break rules and speed limits all the time. For so long no one has cared, until now!
In 2013 in new York City, close to 300 people were killed in vehicle accidents.
