Many New Yorkers don't have cars, but there are still millions of vehicles in the city. Thousands of them are owned by the city or one of its departments, and city employees get into accidents like everyone else.
If a person or a person's vehicle is in a collision in New York City, it may not even make bystanders bat an eye. People on the streets of Manhattan are used to all sorts of activities and generally mind their own business. But this strange urban routine does not make it all right that an accident happened, even if the city government was involved.
New York City pedestrians are likely some of the most aware and traffic-savvy walkers in the world. The metro area is a huge corridor of fast-paced complexity, with walker-linked challenges literally existing at every turn in the road.
New Yorkers wait out with maximum grace and patience each year the long slog from a seemingly unending winter to the welcome months of summer that finally arrive.
