The Park Slope traffic “Death-O-Meter”

December 4, 2008

Meet the Death-O-Meter, a tough-to-ignore 20-foot sign installed near Grand Army Plaza in 1927. The finger-wagging sign kept track of the number of traffic accidents and fatalities in the borough and reminded motorists to put on the brakes at this dangerous traffic circle. 


Perhaps the Death-O-Meter should be brought back to certain city intersections and traffic circles? It must be in a storage unit gathering dust somewhere.
