Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision a of section 14-153 of the administrative code of the city of New York, is amended to read as follows:

a. The department shall publish on its website the following traffic-related data: (1) the number of moving violation summonses issued, disaggregated by type of summons; (2) the number of traffic crashes, disaggregated by (i) the type of vehicle or vehicles involved; (ii) the number of motorists and/or injured passengers, bicyclists, scooter users and pedestrians involved; and (3) the number of traffic-related fatalities and injuries disaggregated by (i) the number of motorists and/or injured passengers, bicyclists, scooter users and pedestrians involved; and (ii) the apparent human contributing factor or factors involved in the crash, including, but not limited to alcohol, driver inattention/distraction, speeding, failure to yield and use of cell phones or other mobile devices. For purposes of the above, bicyclists shall be further disaggregated by the number of bicyclists using bicycles that run exclusively on human power and by the number of bicyclists using bicycles that are capable of running on human power that may also be powered by an electric motor or by a gasoline motor that is capable of propelling the device without human power and is not capable of being registered with the New York state department of motor vehicles.

§ 2. Section 19-186 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended to read as follows:

§ 19-186. Compilation of bicycle and scooter crash data

a. The department shall compile the total number of bicycle and scooter crashes that are reported to city agencies. Such bicycle and scooter crash compilation shall include crashes between bicycles or scooters, between bicycles or scooters and motorized vehicles and between bicycles or scooters and pedestrians. [The department shall commence compiling such data on October 1, 2011.]

b. [On June 1, 2012 and annually thereafter,] By June 1 of each year, the department shall provide a report to the council for the preceding calendar year, with such report posted on the department's website, of the total number of reported crashes as required by subdivision a of this section, disaggregated by those involving solely bicycles or solely scooters, between bicycles or scooters and motorized vehicles, and between bicycles or scooters and pedestrians. Such report shall also include the number of injuries and fatalities resulting from such crashes disaggregated as above. Such report shall also be disaggregated by borough and by police precinct.

c. All compilation of information and all reporting required by this section shall disaggregate bicycles by the number of bicycles that run exclusively on human power and by the number of bicycles that are capable of running on human power that may also be powered by an electric motor or by a gasoline motor that is capable of propelling the device without human power and is not capable of being registered with the New York state department of motor vehicles.

§ 3. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law.
