As we celebrate along with city officials the announcement that New York City traffic death rates reached an all-time low in 2011, we say a record of positive results is a reason to push for more improvement.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
New York City car accident attorney David Resnick today congratulated New York City administrators on a record low in the number of annual traffic fatalities. He also challenged the city to go even further to improve traffic safety.
“As we celebrate along with city officials the announcement that New York City traffic death rates reached an all-time low in 2011, we say a record of positive results is a reason to push for more improvement,” said Resnick of David Resnick & Associates, P.C.
“We look forward to additional traffic safety initiatives from the Mayor’s office and the New York City DOT to curb such dangerous conduct as aggressive driving, speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving,” Resnick said.
In a recent press release, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Department of Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan and Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly announced that New York City had recorded the fewest traffic-related fatalities in 2011 since record-keeping began in 1910. As of December 27, there were 237 traffic fatalities in 2011 – 40 percent fewer than occurred in 2001, the NYCDOT said.
“The new record lows come as the Department of Transportation has undertaken unprecedented safety engineering initiatives and public education efforts, and the NYPD has implemented aggressive enforcement programs, all to reduce dangerous speeding, combat drunken driving and calm traffic citywide,” the release stated.
