Schools for Life Safety Evaluations

$0 / year

This dataset contains NYC (New York City) Safe Routes to Schools (Priority Schools). DOT (Department of Transportation) analyzed citywide crash data and school data in order to identify a new group of 135 public, private and parochial elementary and middle schools Priority Schools. Each of DOT’s Priority Schools receives an individualized planning study which determines both short-term and long-term measures to improve safety.

DOT School Safety implements the City’s Vision Zero program by developing street improvement projects near schools. The unit focuses on street redesigns and runs the city’s School Slow Zone program whereby speed limits are reduced near schools. School Safety works with communities, schools, elected officials and other units throughout the agency to identify and implement safety projects, and coordinate the implementation of concrete, markings, signals and signage-based safety treatments. In addition, School Safety installs “school” signage on the immediate approach to school property to alert drivers to the presence of students.

DOT School Safety strives to implement changes quickly using in house crews, and works closely with school communities to respond to safety concerns. School Safety focuses its efforts on high crash corridors and intersections near schools and works with units throughout the agency to quickly plan, design, and implement traffic calming projects.

DOT School Safety installs School Slow Zones adjacent to schools to reduce crashes and create a more comfortable pedestrian environment. In a School Slow Zone the speed limit is lowered to 20 mph during school days. If a speed bump is feasible the speed limit is reduced to 15 mph. School Slow Zones are generally installed on streets with only one moving lane per direction.
