NYC Traffic Deaths Down 26 Percent In 2014

There were 51 NYC traffic fatalities during the first quarter of 2014, a 26 percent decline from that period last year.

The cause of significant decrease isn't clear, but some believe it should be credited to the change in New York City leadership.

"This is the mayor's Vision Zero program starting to show its benefits," said Juan Martinez, the legislative director for Transportation Alternatives in an interview with NY Daily News. "It's still early but this is very, very promising."

While Vision Zero is in its infancy, is it possible that the message of the campaign is influencing the residents of New York City?

If just a few motorists, pedestrians and police officers have adopted a different mindset, it could be making a measurable difference.

Whether you believe it's a lucky coincidence that fatalities decreased during de Blasio's first months as NYC Mayor or you think it's the beginning of something big, it is encouraging to know that fewer traffic deaths impacted families in the early months of 2014.
