Mapping New York Traffic Problems
The City of New York has set a 'Vision Zero' goal which aims to end traffic accident deaths and injuries on the city's roads.
To help achieve this aim the City has released the Vision Zero interactive map which allows New Yorkers to share their knowledge of the city streets. Anyone can report an issue with the city's streets by clicking on the problem location and completing a short form.
The problems reported can be to do with double parking, poor visibility, speeding or a number of issues. The map also displays the streets with the most pedestrian accidents and the location of pedestrian fatalities.
