Pedestrian Safety in the Bronx

I love walking. I could walk anywhere if I have a decent pair of shoes and the time to spare. It’s such a great way to get a feel for a neighborhood and of course, the exercise is a plus, too. So when I heard about the Walk Safer NYC accident map I was intrigued. I also am a geek for infographics and data because of this one sociology class I took my freshman year of college. Anyway, the site breaks down the most dangerous intersections in the city, contributing factors of the collisions, vehicle type, and so forth. I learned that the worst intersection in the Bronx is Webster Ave. and East Fordham Road, which I cross at least once a week. 😦 Go on and check out the site and see if there are any of those terrible intersections near you! Let’s advocate together for safer streets for us all.
