We thought we would use the traffic accident data that have accumulated over the last 12 months, which include more than 200,000 collisions across the five boroughs, to reveal where crashes happen, who they involve, what are their causes, and – perhaps – whether Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero plan is on track to achieving its ambitious goal of eliminating all traffic deaths in the Big Apple by 2024.
Some interesting takeaways:
- Queens has the most accidents by quantity, barely edging out Brooklyn
- Bronx accidents are more likely to have injuries
- The day that has the most collisions is Thursday
- 5:30 - 6pm has the highest frequency of collisions
