Thanks in part to the safety improvement program 'Vision Zero', overall traffic fatalities in New York City have fallen for the fourth consecutive year in 2017 to their lowest on record. According to city officials, the number of pedestrians, motorists and cyclists killed in accidents on New York City streets in 2017 fell by 7 percent. Overall, they have fallen 28 percent since 2013, when Vision Zero began to be implemented. The program, which includes lowering speed limits, tougher enforcement and improved street design, is one of New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio’s signature policies during his first term in office.
