Plan for Pedestrian-Friendly New York City Streets By Levine & Slavit PLLC on September 01, 2010

Last week we posted a blog concerning the NYC Pedestrian Safety Study conducted by the New York City Department of Transportation. Based on the study's findings, the DOT has made several action plan recommendations to continue to drive down pedestrian traffic fatalities and ensure New York City truly has world class streets that are safe for everyone. This plan includes, the installation of countdown pedestrian signals at 1,500 intersections around the city, re-engineering 60 miles of streets for greater pedestrian safety, according to corridor crash data and 20 intersections for pedestrian safety on major Manhattan two-way streets in an effort to make traffic congested streets pedestrian friendly. Additionally, the DOT is set to launch a pilot program to test the safety performance of neighborhood 20 mph zones and implement a pilot program to improve viability at left turns along avenues in Manhattan. With the launch of these action plans New York City streets might in fact one day become among the safest in the world, or so the DOT hopes so.
