More Than 100 Children Have Died in NYC Traffic Crashes Since Vision Zero Launch

On July 3, a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old passenger were killed in a crash. They were the 100th and 101st children killed in New York City’s Vision Zero Era. My son, Cooper Stock, was the first.

“After Cooper was killed, I wanted to believe that his death would have meaning. However, as I have watched 100 other children suffer a similar fate, I can’t help but feel that our city continues to fail our kids. More than 60 percent of the children killed were pedestrians, and a third were walking to or from school.”
