In New York, accidents have been increasing every year. New York’s Department of Transportation (DOT) has implemented more slow zones on New York City streets. DOT authorities set the speed limit at these zones to 20 mph.
The intention behind the implementation of slow zones is to reduce the severity and the risk of accidents. DOT authorities expect a 42% drop in injuries associated with accidents with this slow zone implementation.
The areas where slow zones need to be implemented are decided based on DOT authorities’ analysis on traffic crashes, the presence of schools and healthcare centers.
If you have suffered injuries due to an accident, then you may be eligible for compensation to cover medical bills and other damages. To claim compensation, you need to prove that the other party was negligent. It is advisable to consult a New York personal injury attorney to deal with the claim.
