In 2013, 291 people were killed in traffic accidents and another 4,000 were injured in New York. The government is making an effort to reduce fatalities of injuries resulting from the accidents within the city.
The NY government has set the speed limit to 25 miles per hour in some areas of New York City. The reduced speed limit is intended to reduce severity and injuries resulting from accidents. The reduced speed limit has led to reduced mortality rate in motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents.
Reduction in the speed limit also serves to reduce accidents. The speed limits are restricted only to some areas where no other speed limits are posted. Areas where speed limits are posted like highways, school zones, and other designated areas are not subject to the 25 mile per hour restriction.
