QUEENS (PIX11) — We hear about the speed cameras, we hear about the “slow zone,” we hear about the speed bumps that get added. We hear about this “Vision Zero.”

At this intersection, there are seven lanes to cross before the countdown timers finish. For many, it’s not enough time.

New Yorkers from all over the city are asking officials to look into this. And they are — trying to get it all on a map.

“Well this is an intersection where many people have died within the last year,” one young father said. “My problem in particular with this intersection is that there’s a right turn signal here … cars are blowing through this right turn when they’re supposed to be going slow.”

The City is trying to track this information. As of July 31st, this Vision Zero map has logged places that need attention based on local submissions.

Brooklyn has many dots, and areas that need attention around downtown and Prospect Park. Not as many around Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights.
