21 people died and 3,899 suffered personal injury in a vehicle accident in New York City last January compared to 26 deaths and 4,277 personal injuries the month before and 28 deaths and 3,993 personal injuries the same month a year ago.
More than 1000 pedestrians suffered personal injury in a vehicle accident last January. The number of pedestrians who died after being struck by a vehicle was of 12 last January compared to 17 in December, 25 in November and 20 the same month a year ago. At this point it is difficult to know if this decrease is already the result of NYPD Vision Zero measures or if the bad weather kept many pedestrians inside.
1 cyclist died after being struck by a bus (see previous blog) and 116 suffered personal injury compare to 190 in January last year. The number of injuries related to bicycle accidents is the lowest in one year.
