Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer is vowing to push forward with her campaign to increase traffic safety.

In the past two weeks, there have been several fatal accidents involving pedestrians near West 96th Street.

Speaking on "Inside City Hall" Thursday, Brewer called on Manhattan community boards to submit lists of their top problem spots.

She says she wants to work with the 12 boards, the Department of Transportation and the NYPD.

"We want to make sure that they're studies, or hotspots, identified for all 12 boards, because we had identified this as a hotspot. It had not been addressed," Brewer said. "So we have to make sure that other hotspots are addressed now so there isn't a fatality."

Recent proposals have included installing speed cameras and lowering the city's speed limit.
