NYCDOT's Traffic Management Center (TMC) maintains a map of traffic speed detectors throughout the City. The speed detector themselves belong to various city and state agencies. The Traffic Speeds Map is available on the DOT's website (http://nyctmc.org/ ). This data feed contains 'real-time' traffic information from locations where NYCDOT picks up sensor feeds within the five boroughs, mostly on major arterials and highways. NYCDOT uses this information for emergency response and management.
DOT's CityRacks provide free sidewalk bicycle parking racks throughout the five boroughs. CityRacks are a convenience for the entire cycling community. Also, the availability of CityRacks parking discourages cyclists from parking at mailboxes, parking meters, trees, and other sidewalk structures.
The Parking Regulations are drawn from DOT’s traffic sign database, STATUS, which is used by DOT in managing its inventory of over one million traffic signs in New York City. The database keeps track of the description, location and installation dates for DOT traffic signs. The Locations and Signs datasets need to be used in combination. The data in files can be linked, to find an applicable regulation, using the 'StatusOrderNumber' value. This process is automated at our DOT Parking Regulation website: http://a841-dotvweb01.nyc.gov/ParkingRegs/ViewController/LocationValidation.aspx
Data that that populates the Vision Zero View map, which can be found at www.nycvzv.info Vision Zero is the City's goal for ending traffic deaths and injuries. The Vision Zero action plan can be found at http://www.nyc.gov/html/visionzero/pdf/nyc-vision-zero-action-plan.pdf Crash data is obtained from the Traffic Accident Management System (TAMS), which is maintained by the New York City Police Department (NYPD). Only crashes with valid geographic information are mapped. All midblock crashes are mapped to the nearest intersection. Injuries and fatalities are grouped by intersection and summarized by month and year. This data is queried and aggregated on a monthly basis and is current as of the query date. Current year data is January to the end of the latest full month. All mappable crash data is represented on the simplified NYC street model. Crashes occurring at complex intersections with multiple roadways are mapped onto a single point. Injury and fatality crashes occurring on highways are excluded from this data. Please note that this data is preliminary and may contain errors, accordingly, the data on this site is for informational purposes only. Although all attempts to provide the most accurate information are made, errors may be present and any person who relies upon this data does so at their own risk.

DOT Street Closure data identifies locations in the New York City Street Closure map where a street is subject to a full closure, restricting through traffic, for the purpose of conducting construction related activity on a City street. Details about DOT construction permits can be found at Street Works Manual, http://streetworksmanual.nyc/. Full Closure Permits are issued for a period of time during which the street may be closed to through traffic for only a portion of the time, and open at other times.
