Every year, approximately 4,000 New Yorkers are seriously injured and more than 250 are killed in traffic crashes. Being struck by a vehicle is the leading cause of injury-related death for children under 14, and the second leading cause for seniors. On average, vehicles seriously injure or kill a New Yorker every two hours.

Vision Zero is the City’s goal for ending traffic deaths and injuries on our streets. To accomplish this, we need everyone’s participation and input. Learn more about Vision Zero.

Use this interactive map to share your experiences with city streets. Your knowledge will be used to create a traffic safety plan for each borough that will describe how to make each borough’s streets safer for everyone, whether walking, biking or driving.

You’re also invited to a Vision Zero workshop to share your ideas. Workshops are being held in all five boroughs.

Also, the full description of the Vision Zero Action Plan is downloadable here.
