NYC Department of Transportation Says New York Streets Are Among America's Safest

New statistics released by the City's Department of Transportation show the city's traffic fatality rate remains among the lowest in the nation, and among the lowest the city has ever seen.

Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan attributed the low traffic fatality rates to the city's efforts to provide pedestrian plazas, bike lanes, and public safety campaigns throughout the city.
