Tell the City Where You Want Street Safety Fixes — The Clock Is Ticking

hj

The city’s Vision Zero map includes a new function that lets you use Street View to flag street safety issues.

If you haven’t visited the Vision Zero feedback map and flagged locations where you want the city to make streets safer, get it done soon. The website will be taking suggestions for street safety fixes through July 31, then city agencies will figure out what to do with those ideas.

The city launched the map at the end of April (disclosure: developers with OpenPlans, Streetsblog’s parent organization, helped create the map tool). About two and half months later, New Yorkers had submitted more than 7,500 comments about dangerous streets and what to do about them, according to DOT.

The tool has a new feature that lets you pinpoint a problem in Google Street View after you select the general location on the map. It helps a lot to get a look at the actual street when you’re trying to tell the city what’s wrong.

There are fewer than 10 days left in the feedback-collection period — get cracking!
