Cities with more public transit usage are safer, for both passengers and pedestrians

The 11 US cities where residents make over 40 transit trips per capita have lower traffic fatality rates. Since they adopted the Vision Zero improvement program, traffic deaths are down 28% in New York City and 41% in San Francisco. (The historically low numbers in the two cities look good even when you only count the drop in pedestrian mortality, too—with a decrease by 46 percent and 34 percent respectively.)
