By Jenna Bagcal

Collisions and collision-related injuries are down from last year in the 111th Precinct, according to web statistics from the New York City Police Department.

On Dec. 17 and Dec. 21, the precinct reported that the number of injury collisions as well as occupant, pedestrian and bicycle injuries had decreased from 2017 to 2018.

The Bayside-based precinct tweeted out the information to followers earlier this month. The command covers parts of the neighborhood as well as Douglaston, Flushing and Little Neck.

According to NYPD TrafficStat, the number of total collisions in the 111th Precinct decreased 0.9 percent from 4,294 to 4,256 and collisions with injuries went down 5 percent from 677 in 2017 to 643 in 2018. TrafficStat also reported that total injuries, occupant injuries and bicycle injuries decreased throughout the precinct:

Total injuries 2017: 952

Occupant injuries 2017: 831

Bicycle injuries 2017: 17

Total injuries 2018: 876 (8 percent decrease)

Occupant injuries 2018: 762 (8.3 percent decrease)

Bicycle injuries 2018: 10 (41.2 percent decrease)

Though the precinct reported a decrease in pedestrian injuries, NYPD TrafficStat showed that the number of pedestrian injuries in 2017 and 2018 were both 104 year-to-date.

Officers from the precinct used the hashtag #VisionZero, crediting Mayor Bill de Blasio’s action plan to end traffic deaths and injuries in New York City Streets by 2024.
