by Ben Fried

To make walking safer, New York City will re-engineer 60 miles of streets per year and pilot the use of neighborhood-scale 20 mph zones, the city's top electeds and transportation officials announced this morning. The commitments are among several street safety measures unveiled today, accompanying NYCDOT's release of a landmark report analyzing the causes of serious pedestrian injuries and deaths, which affect thousands of New Yorkers every year.
