New York City DOT conducted the first, unprecedented Pedestrian Safety
Report and Action Plan that examined over 7,000 records of accidents that
caused serious injuries or fatalities to pedestrians, and identified underlying causes.
Key findings revealed by New York City DOT:
- Between 2005 and 2009, pedestrians accounted for 52% of the traffic fatalities.
- In nearly 36% of the crashes that resulted in serious injury or death,
driver inattention was cited.
- 27% of pedestrian fatality crashes involved a driver who failed to yield.
- 80% of crashes that cause serious pedestrian injury or death involved male drivers.
- 79% of accidents that seriously injure or kill pedestrians involve private
vehicles, not taxis, busses, or trucks.
Based on the study's findings, DOT decided to implement countermeasures
such as installing countdown pedestrian signals at 1,500 intersections,
and launching a pilot program to test the safety performance of neighborhood
20 mph zones.
