Manhattan is host to millions of people every day, and many of them are on the move. The high volume of drivers, bikers and pedestrians provides for a vibrant city, yet it also creates the potential for a variety of motor vehicle accidents. As such, New York leaders are usually trying to find ways to protect the safety of everyone on the road.
