For pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists, intersections are a dangerous place to be in New York City. Constantly in motion, intersections are places where multiple transportation modes meet, and do not necessarily safely mingle.
Depending on the borough, the danger of a traffic accident rises and falls. In 2015, Brooklyn was the most dangerous place to be for pedestrians and bicyclists, followed by Queens. For motorists in 2015, Queens was tops for motorist injuries and fatalities.
