r. to provide to the public, at no charge on the city's website, an interactive crime and traffic crash map that, for each segment of a street bounded by one or more intersections and/or a terminus, shall visually display the aggregate monthly, yearly and year-to-date totals for the current and the most recent prior calendar years for each class of crime that is reported to the New York city police department, or for which an arrest was made, including crimes that occurred in parks and subway stations, and for each such segment of a street, the aggregate monthly, yearly and year-to-date totals of traffic crashes and the number of fatalities that resulted from all such traffic crashes.
