NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio pushes the revised Borough Pedestrian Safety Plans (Vision Zero Watch)

Mayor de Blasio released the city’s 2019 “Borough Pedestrian Safety Plans” on Tuesday, pledging to double-down on some proven successes of his five-year-old Vision Zero campaign with a mix of new and old strategies for the most-dangerous roadways.

City officials said roughly seven percent of the city’s roadways are the site of 50 percent of the crashes that kill or severely injure pedestrians. Those roadways comprise the 424 miles of new “priority corridors” going forward.
