Motorists commit about three potentially life-threatening traffic violations every minute at city intersections, clocking in at a stunning 157 each hour, according to the Transportation Alternatives report: From Chaos to Compliance.

And drivers don’t give way to pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles 24 times every hour — even though that same crime caused the second-most crashes in the city two years ago, the transit advocacy group’s study found.

  • An average of 117 violations an hour
  • Drivers disregarding traffic signals 44 times an hour — a total of 350 incidents
  • Drivers disregarding traffic signs 23 times an hour — a total of 180 incidents
  • Drivers disregarding roadway markings 16 times an hour — a total of 127 incidents
  • Drivers failing to yield to pedestrians 14 times an hour — a total of 113 incidents
