New York auto accident lawyer David Perecman gives his support to a new initiative to prevent traffic fatalities and auto accidents in New York City.

Transportation Alternatives, in partnership with the Drum Major Institute for Public Policy, is using the statistics from a recently released report to kick off an aggressive street safety campaign called Vision Zero. Vision Zero means “zero deaths, zero injuries and zero fear of traffic.”

The Transportation Alternatives study finds that speeding vehicles are the number one contributing factor for fatal vehicle accidents, and recommends ways that the city can eliminate illegal and dangerous speeding. For example, the addition of speed bumps, curb extensions, bicycle lanes, and/or pedestrian islands to the roads would discourage speeding and this would likely reduce the number of fatal vehicle accidents and auto injuries in New York.

The report also recommends broad-based policy changes in New York City administration, including the formation of executive committees and working groups to coordinate street safety initiatives; the implementation of more 20 mile-per-hour zones; more collaboration between the Department of Transportation and NYPD to identify and handle enforcement strategies; and the installation of speed detectors throughout the city using fixed and mobile traffic surveillance cameras.

“To prevent as many pedestrian deaths and New York auto accidents as possible, the city should use all available solutions in New York,” auto accident lawyer Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s auto accident law firms, said.
