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.
