Re: NYT article: "Mayor De Blasio Looks Toward Sweden for Road Safety"


Recent articles by in the NYTimes "Well" blog include:


Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York came into office a year ago with many plans, perhaps the
most ambitious of which was to eliminate traffic deaths. The need for the goal, known as
Vision Zero, was reinforced by the deaths of 13 pedestrians in the first month of his tenure.

Plans to eliminate traffic deaths involve shared responsibilities among drivers, cyclists,
pedestrians, traffic enforcers and street designers, all of whom must change behaviors
and attitudes.


Older adults account for a disproportionate number of pedestrian deaths, so they need to
make sure they have enough time to cross a street
