Just by trying to get somewhere in New York City, you run the risk of being in a traffic accident. And with the number of cars on the road, that risk is rising.
As less New Yorkers use public transportation, the danger on city streets is going up. More residents of New York City are choosing to use ride-hailing services like Uber or Lyft over public transportation. With more residents using individual cars over buses and subways, traffic accidents are on the rise.
