Bike Lanes Make Streets Safer for Pedestrians
A rundown from the Tri-State Transportation Campaign hits some of the highlights.
"Several of the study's findings echo conclusions drawn by the Campaign's recent reports. In particular, DOT's analysis shows that 60 percent of pedestrian fatalities occur on wide "arterials," though they make up only 15 percent of the road network - a key finding of our Dangerous Roads report. And, as with our Older Pedestrians at Risk report, the DOT notes that seniors are disproportionately represented among NYC pedestrian fatalities."
