NYC has fewest traffic fatalities ever

NYC has kept track of traffic fatalities since 1910. 2018 was fewest ever, 10% fewer than 2017. Pedestrian fatalities were up 7%. Marketplace (the radio show) reported http://download.stream.publicradio.org/podcast/marketplace/segments/2019/01/02/mp_20190102_seg_20_64.mp3 2 minutes

Most people in NYC use public transit and keep their car in a garage if they own one at all. People I know use their personal cars as an “escape pod”…only used to leave the city and not to bop around town.
