New York City takes steps to improve pedestrian safety

In every large urban city, it's important to ensure that the streets are safe not only for drivers and passengers in motor vehicles, but also for those residents who choose to walk. In New York City, providing for the safety of millions of pedestrians is a main initiative and goal of the Vision Zero plan which seeks to "eliminate all deaths from traffic" for motorists, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians alike.

Number of fatal NYC construction accidents climbs to 7

Throughout New York City, signs of economic progress and prosperity are abound. One of the most noticeable indicators of the city’s strong economy revolves around the current building boom. Already this year a total of 43,783 building permits have been issued—a number that by year's end could rival the record-setting building permit numbers of the 1960s.

Technology keeps New York drivers safer when tired

Forward collision systems and lane departure warnings may protect tired drivers from getting into accidents. A forward warning system will beep or flash lights at a driver to warn him or her about an impending collision. In some cases, the car will actually brake for the driver to avoid the collision. It is believed that such a tool could reduce rear-end accidents by as much as 10 percent.
