1 Transportation Issues Poll for New York City 82% support Vision Zero and reducing traffic deaths 72% on average, support more street space for children to play, protected bike lanes and other safety designs, even if it results in less parking space. The average poll respondent is: A car owner 53 years old Votes every year New Yorkers overwhelmingly support Vision Zero and the City s efforts to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured in traffic. 63% percent of respondents strongly support Vision Zero, a figure that rises to 73% among Black, Hispanic and lower-income New Yorkers groups that are disproportionately affected by traffic crashes and poor transit service. A total of 82% of New Yorkers polled either strongly or somewhat support Vision Zero. New Yorkers strongly favor street safety changes and more space for children over parking. On average, approximately 72% support protected bike lanes, dedicated bus lanes, safe pedestrian space, places for children to play, speed bumps and other street design measures to slow down traffic, even if they result in fewer parking spots and less space for vehicles. Such support remains strong even among car-owners. Car ownership. 68% of poll respondent households own a car vs 46% among the general city population, and strongly support street safety measures and better transit dispelling the notion that car owners oppose safety changes for pedestrians and bicyclists.

2 Transportation Issues Poll for New York City Consistently, New Yorkers say they want to see officials prioritize street safety and better transit, and that s true of car owners as well. Black, Hispanic and lower-income New Yorkers in particular support these measures, and they're also the ones disproportionately affected by dangerous streets, speeding and poor transit service. Infrastructure investment. 8 of 10 New Yorkers (80%) strongly support infrastructure investments to fix dangerous streets to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries. 12% When New Yorkers learn of the safety benefits of street improvements and protected bike lanes, their support for those measures is even stronger. When learning that widened sidewalks and pedestrian safety islands have reduced traffic injuries and fatalities by over 40%, the level of "strong support" grew by 12%-points to 51%, with an additional 29% who support it somewhat - for a total support level of 68%. Protected bike lanes are becoming more popular. Support for bike lanes has increased significantly since % strongly supported protected bike lanes in 2013 vs 40% in a remarkable increase given that the growing support is taking place within a city with even more bike lanes every year. The more New Yorkers experience protected bike lanes, the more they support them. The total support (adding strong and somewhat support) was 53% in 2013 vs 68% in Bike share expansion and protected bike lanes. 7 of 10 (71%) New Yorkers support expanding Citi Bike (bike share) to more neighborhoods in all five boroughs. Nearly the same ratio believe expansion of Citi Bike should include adding protected bike lanes in areas of Citi Bike expansion. Traffic enforcement. New Yorkers strongly support better enforcement against dangerous driving. 81% of respondents think penalties should occur more frequently and faster against drivers who negligently kill or injure others. And 82% think the Right of Way misdemeanor is either an appropriate penalty or is not strong enough (the law makes it a misdemeanor crime, punishable by a maximum of 30 days imprisonment, for failing to yield and injuring or killing a pedestrian or bicyclist with the right of way, while failing to use due care). Among lower-income New Yorkers, 97% believe this and only 1% of lower-income New Yorkers believe the Right of Way law misdemeanor penalty is too strong.

3 Transportation Issues Poll for New York City Strong support for car-free "PeopleWays" to address L-Train shutdown for tunnel repairs. To accommodate more than 250,000 current L-Train riders during the 2019 shutdown, 66% of respondents support car-free corridors on 14th St. in Manhattan and Grand St. in Brooklyn, to make room for faster dedicated bus-only service, protected bike lanes and expanded pedestrian space. Congestion pricing, fixing NYC transit and MTA control. New Yorkers overwhelmingly support fees, similar to the Move NY Fair Plan that changes the tolls on bridges, to help pay for improvements to transit, infrastructure and alleviate traffic congestion. Respondents preferred a tolling plan by a ratio of 9-1 when compared to raising transit fares, and by a ratio 3-1 when compared to raising taxes on all residents. Just 28% of respondents believed the NY Governor controls the MTA. Strong support for speed safety cameras. New Yorkers overwhelmingly support more speed enforcement cameras near schools to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries. 84% of all respondents support placing speed enforcement cameras near more city schools than the 140 currently allowed under state law, with 64% of respondents expressing strong support. Driverless cars. 80% of New Yorkers say autonomous vehicles must be designed and regulated to protect the most vulnerable people (pedestrians and bicyclists) on the streets.

12 Topics: Traffic Enforcement and the Right of Way Law 23. In January 2014, a 9-year old boy was killed by a sober driver while crossing the street holding his father s hand. The driver failed to yield and failed to use due care to avoid hitting the boy and his father inside the crosswalk.

How much have you heard about the 2019 shutdown of the L-train to make tunnel repairs? A lot Some A little Nothing at all Don t Know (Vol.) ALL HEARD THE FOLLOWING: The MTA has announced a shutdown of the L-train in 2019 to make tunnel repairs. This will leave up to 225,000 daily riders without this transportation option between Brooklyn and Manhattan and along 14 th Street in Manhattan, and is expected to result in more people using cars. To address this, many New Yorkers and elected officials are calling for turning 14 th Street in Manhattan and Grand Street in Brooklyn into a car-free People Way to make room for faster dedicated bus-only lane service, protected bike lanes and expanded pedestrian space along the corridor. Such changes could allow 14 th Street to accommodate twice as many commuters as it currently does. 27. Do you strongly support, somewhat support, somewhat oppose, or strongly oppose this proposed plan for a People Way on 14 th Street in Manhattan and Grand Street in Brooklyn? Strongly support Somewhat support Somewhat oppose Strongly oppose Don t Know (Vol.) Page 10 - Appendix

14 28. Who do you believe controls the MTA, including New York City s subways, buses, and bridges?

Some drivers also pay high tolls to cross bridges in Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island while other drivers pay no tolls at all on most bridges leading into Manhattan. To help pay for improvements to transit and New York City s roads and bridges, what should the Governor do first? Raise transit fares for subway and bus riders Raise taxes on all residents Introduce new tolls on bridges that lead into Manhattan currently without tolls, while lowering them on bridges in other boroughs that already have high tolls None of the above Don t Know (Vol.) Page 11 - Appendix
