November 29, 2011 – According to a report from NBC New York, the New York City Department of Transportation is accepting applications for areas that are in need of slow zones. Slow zones reduce the driving speeds from 30 mph down to 20. In an effort to reduce the number of traffic-related injuries and deaths, areas that are especially in need of enforcement will be targeted. However, the Department of Transportation needs help in determining which neighborhoods need them the most. Slow zones will be specially marked and include speed bumps, along with other deterrents. Applications for the slow zones must be received by Feb. 3. Speeding, distracted driving, and other forms of negligence can lead to injuries. If you or a loved one were seriously injured as a result of someone else’s careless or reckless actions, then you may be eligible to receive compensation. Speak to a New York City accident attorney to learn what options are available. Compensation can address not only your medical expenses and lost wages but other damages such as pain and suffering, wrongful death, future medical bills and lost income and more. When you need help filing a claim, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.
