Cities don’t need expensive new traffic signals or road blocks to keep pedestrians safe. They just need a bucket of paint.

Now, these kinds of low-cost interventions are being implemented across the country, with similar benefits. The study, conducted by Sam Schwartz Consulting, analyzed 22 Bloomberg-funded projects in the United States, comparing crash data from before and after the artworks were introduced, dating back to 2016. Some of these projects were completed for just a few thousand dollars. A few cost just hundreds.
