More traffic deaths in 2017

Bicycle and pedestrian deaths rose last year, in spite of the small decline in traffic deaths. Pedestrian deaths increased from 139 to 144 and cyclist deaths rose from 14 to 18.

Additionally, 10 New Yorkers have been killed in traffic related incidents in the first 10 days of the year, so  Vision Zero has not been as effective in the waning days of 2017.

Mayor De Blasio has looked into spending more money on capital construction projects, which will have a positive impact on reducing traffic deaths.
