New York City is a walking city. Walking has no cost and is often one stage in a longer trip that could include other modes of transportation. The Borough Pedestrian Safety Action Plans focus on fatal and severe injuries involving pedestrians because protecting the most vulnerable road users by prioritizing pedestrian safety has benefits for all modes. This year, New York City pedestrian fatalities have dropped significantly, declining 32 percent from the 2016 total.
