NYPD Motor Vehicle Collisions

In New York City (NYC), more than 200,000 motor vehicle collisions happen every year. This means about every 3 minute, a collision happens somewhere in NYC. To reduce collisions, there is a need to discover the key factors to improve. The use of NYC collision data and historical weather data to identify the worst location (total number of collisions) and worst weather condition (frequency of collision)

In this NYC collision dataset, one can easily identify various worst locations other than total number of vehicle collision. For example number of people injured, number of pedestrians injured and specific vehicle type collision. “The worst taxi-taxi collision locations.” That is Penn Station/ Madison Square Garden. This location has huge human and taxi traffic. In fact, these surrounding blocks hold all top 4 worst taxi-taxi collision locations. This doesn’t sound like a coincidence but has a very good reason to invite taxi collisions. Looking carefully, the taxi pick-up and drop-off places are mixed in this location. Making a clear separation between pick-up and drop-off would improve number of collisions in this busy location.
