Other cities, like Vancouver and New York, are deliberately and successfully using street design changes to reduce the number of deaths and injuries.

"Traffic fatalities in New York have indeed fallen significantly, from 701 in 1990, to 381 in 2000, to an all-time low of 249 in 2011. The city has become nationally and internationally recognized as a leading innovator in safe street designs. At locations where the New York City Department of Transportation has made major engineering changes since 2005, fatalities have decreased by 34%, twice the rate of improvement at other locations. But it is still not enough. We can, and must, do better."

Or, they could have just decided to blame inattentive pedestrians and drivers and leave it at that.
