Another pedestrian accident: Business owner killed in crosswalk

Although the number of pedestrians killed in traffic accidents went down the prior two years, the figures for this year are running high, with 20 pedestrians and three cyclists killed sp far. There have also been more than 900 pedestrian injuries in New York City accidents this year. The apparent rise in pedestrian accident numbers raises new doubts that the Vision Zero program is on track to eliminate such deaths by 2024.

Man places traffic cones to halt pedestrian accident occurrences

The Vision Zero plan in New York has had some modest success, which includes last year being reported as the safest year on the city's streets in over a century. Nevertheless, the reports of fatalities continue to occur, along with even more regular reports of accidents and non-fatal injuries. One safe streets advocate recently offered some of his own ideas about controlling pedestrian accident statistics in an interview with a member of the press.

Pedestrian injury victim may claim damages from reckless driver

Some antics of drivers in New York City may strike some observers as comedic displays by eccentric personalities. But the antics of a reckless driver in Manhattan are nothing to be proud about. Indeed, the 27-year-old driver who went on a driving rampage through the city recently is now facing assault and attempted robbery charges. He may expect to be confronted by personal injury claims from those who suffered pedestrian injury from his seemingly wanton and destructive actions.

Fatal Pedestrian accident adds to mounting toll involving buses

Despite New York City's spiked-up efforts to make the city's streets safer for pedestrians and bicyclists, there have been three fatal accidents in one recent week alone in which a bus struck and killed a pedestrian. The third pedestrian accident involving a bus occurred on Nov. 5 at about 8:30 p.m. in Flushing. An unidentified victim was killed at the intersection of Main Street and Kissena Boulevard by a bus that did not stop.

Man incurs pedestrian injury in 12-foot fall down cellar opening

There are some kinds of accidents in New York City that don't involve motor vehicles, but because they may be caused by negligence, the injured victims may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. One of the more prominent areas of pedestrian injury involves pedestrians falling into a sidewalk grate that covers an opening to a private business' cellar area on Manhattan's streets. Additionally, significant injuries are chalked up by the cracks, splits and holes that dot the sidewalks in Manhattan areas where there is substantial foot traffic.

New safety measures may reduce pedestrian accident numbers

The Vision Zero traffic safety program is implementing new projects that employ technological advancements to cut down on accidental injuries and deaths. The latest high tech project has to deal with improving the safety records of buses in the city. It is hoped that pedestrian accident numbers in New York City will be reduced with the new technology.

Pedestrian accident: SUV kills pedestrian on sidewalk, injures 2

Pedestrians in New York are typically aware of their vulnerability when they cross busy streets. However, most would likely not consider walking on the sidewalk to be life-threatening. In a shocking pedestrian accident in Queens, three pedestrians, including a small child, were struck by a car while they were walking on the sidewalk.

Technology to be tested for reducing pedestrian accident numbers

An important new technology is slated to be tested in New York City and two other venues as part of a $42 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The technology intends to improve pedestrian safety and reduce pedestrian accident numbers. It is also designed to reduce congestion and emissions.

Reduction of pedestrian accident numbers is goal of Vision Zero

On July 14, a group called Families for Safe Streets held a vigil attended by hundreds of people at Union Square in New York City. That group was joined by another advocacy group, Transportation Alternatives, in making the case for safer streets and smaller pedestrian accident numbers. The gathering also met to support the program of Mayor de Blasio called Vision Zero, which intends to reduce the number of traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries down to zero by the year 2024.  

Pedestrian accident numbers can be reduced by fewer left turns

It's hard to believe that the expansive versatility of Google could be implemented to decrease the rate of pedestrian deaths in a metropolitan area like New York City. Nonetheless, that is precisely what some city policymakers and engineers are seeking in their efforts to get Google to program certain safety procedures into Google maps. It is hoped that pedestrian accident numbers will be reduced by the intended changes.
