Despite Zero Vision efforts the number of traffic injuries and deaths in February in NYC are going up again
3,665 people were injured and 18 people died in traffic accidents in New York City last month. This is the highest number of crash injuries and the second highest number of crash deaths recorded in the month of February over the last 4 years. Compared to February of last year the monthly number of people injured in a motor vehicle accident in NYC increased by 23% and the monthly number of people killed by 20%. Even though there are usually less traffic accidents in February than in any other months in New York City the increase of deaths an injuries recorded during the last month is of concern.
