New York Motor vehicle accident data that are made available to the public are not detailed and difficult to analyze. Recently at a Vision Zero Town Hall at John Jay College, the NYPD Chief of Transportation Thomas Chan told Streetblog that better information regarding traffic accidents will soon be available on the Vision Zero website.
Other subjects discussed during the meeting included:
– collaboration between the police and the DOT to educate the public about street safety
– possibility to include MTA in Vision Zero – monitoring technology for limo drivers and other ways to prevent dangerous driving behaviors by limo drivers – the installation of additional audible pedestrian signals for the blinds (see New York Daily News for more info)
– street redesign
