The Law Offices of Omranni & Taub recently compiled data from the NYPD and NYC Open Data Portal to create this scary heat map of distracted driving collisions across the five boroughs.

From 2013 – 2016, there were 115,955 distracted driving crashes in New York City. While these incidents are still likely under reported, this data gives New Yorkers a chance to see the issue in ways that few other jurisdictions can. During this time period, distracted driving was a primary factor in nearly 13.5 percent of all recorded collisions in NYC (854,760) and resulted in 104 fatalities and 29,571 injuries.
