New York City Taking Into Account Cyclists

In reaction to the data released earlier in February, the city of New York has implemented the “TrafficStat” bill (http://legistar.council.nyc.gov/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=777873&GUID=8FA0E3F4-FA01-4206-9677-AB27E2F07FE9&Options=&Search= ), which means that the city will be gathering data on incidents involving traffic, cyclists and pedestrians.

Though the whole state is considered the safest to drive in, they feel that something could still be done with the numbers involving cyclists and pedestrians. TrafficStat is only one in three new traffic safety bills approved by the City Council, meaning that New York residents still have more to look forward to in terms of safety on the road.

One of the other bills focuses on requiring the NYPD to create monthly reports on traffic accidents, to be able to pinpoint problem areas.

Having big developments like these turn into news may only inspire hope that other states follow --- to have their traffic safety efforts become more visible to ease the public.
