Mean Streets: Tracking traffic deaths in New York City
More than half of the 27 pedestrians killed by cars in New York City this year died on major roadways. That’s just one of the findings of a new WNYC analysis of traffic deaths, Mean Streets.
WNYC worked with the NYPD to compile an accurate list of traffic deaths after finding discrepancies between its statistics and those kept by advocacy groups.
The station is tracking each death using an interactive database that includes names, dates, locations, street view maps and brief descriptions of the deaths.
