The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about changes in the movement of people in NYC. With the stay-at-home orders in place, it has been observed that there is less traffic on the roads. Although it is evident that the number of cars has been reduced as an effect of the quarantine measures, it is not safe to say that the number of car accidents has also diminished. In fact, due to the reduction of traffic in New York City’s roadways, some drivers now have the tendency of speeding and going beyond the speed limit.
