The New York Times has an insightful article about the current state of pedestrian and vehicular accidents in New York City. The article breaks down a recent DOT Pedestrian Safety Study and lays out quite clearly where we might want to be standing in relation to the street if we want to avoid being the next injured or dead statistic.

In short, it’s private citizens and their cars that cause the most accidents (not cabbies) and generally speaking, it’s more dangerous to walk around in NYC in November and December (less light, more crowds). If anything, the article is worth reading because it might convince you to make better judgements while driving and walking around the city.
