Final Public Meeting on Regional Pedestrian Safety Study

This is the third and final public meeting that focuses on the impending release of the final draft report for the Regional Pedestrian Safety Study. Interested members of the public are invited to view the study online and/or attend the meeting in addition to submitting appropriate comments for consideration.  The 30-day public comment period for this draft of the report begins on March 7, 2007 and ends on April 6, 2007.

Study background:
In 2005, NYMTC initiated study based on crash data indicating that pedestrian fatalities represented:

    • Approximately 50% of all fatalities from motor vehicle crashes in New York City, and
    • 20% of all fatalities from motor vehicle crashes in the five suburban counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Putnam and Rockland.

The goal of the study was to determine the status of pedestrian safety and the related investment needs in the NYMTC region. In addition, it was designed to identify pedestrian safety issues and recommend measures to improve pedestrian safety.

If you have questions or comments and are unable to attend the meeting, contact Christopher Hardej by the end of the comment period on April 6, 2007.
