NYC traffic injuries are up despite drop in fatalities

Traffic deaths may be down under Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero program, but there are more crashes since the program began and a steadily rising injury toll, ­according to NYPD data.

Collisions on city streets increased more than 11 percent between 2014 and 2018, statistics show. In 2014, there were 205,486, and that number rose to 228,227 in 2018.

During that same time, collisions resulting in injuries increased by 18 percent, from 37,556 in 2014 to 44,508 in 2018.
