From Atlantic Cities:
Police in New York won’t be calling occurrences like the one that took Lefevre’s life “accidents” any longer – at least not officially. As part of a package of reforms in the way it handles traffic fatalities, the NYPD is now replacing the term “accident” with the word “collision.”
“It’s not just semantics,” says Paul Steely White, executive director of the advocacy group Transportation Alternatives. “It underscores a new approach.”
