The Philadelphia Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities released a report titled MOTU@5: 5 Years in Review.  We will be featuring a section per day on the blog from now through the end of the month.  You can find the full report online here.

“Safety Success Stories: Safety Matters” describes how MOTU has worked to ensure that Philadelphians can get where they need to go in a safe manner.  From this section, we picked what we thought were the top 3 most interesting facts:
