How to Not Get Hit by a Car While Walking the Streets of New York — Daily Intel
Quick summary and stand out stats (from 7000 auto/pedestrian collisions between 2002 and 2006):
- In 80% of the collisions, the pedestrian was struck by a car with a male driver.
- Only 13% of the collisions involved taxis/cabs. A whopping 79% involved private passenger cars.
- Brooklyn is the deadliest borough for pedestrians (didn’t dig for the stats).
- NYC in general, is still safer than most American cities, but not quite as safe as some other global cities.
