Members of Community Board 7 and traffic safety advocates are pushing for changes that will allow New York City to independently install speeding cameras as part of citywide efforts to reduce pedestrian fatalities.
Community Board 7 passed two transportation resolutions and tabled another at the monthly full-board meeting Tuesday night.
Ken Coughlin is right about the 96th street intersection, and we need to fix it quickly.
The changes proposed to the intersection of Broadway and 96th Street answer a longtime call for better street safety.
After an elderly man and a nine-year-old were killed on the Upper West Side Friday night, local leaders are pushing for additional safety measures at intersections.
The plan would, among other things, reduce Morningside Avenue to three lanes between 116th and 126th streets in an attempt to reduce traffic speed on a main thoroughfare.
The Department of Transportation proposed changes to the layout of Morningside Avenue to make the street safer, but Community Board 10 members asked to see more data from similar areas before endorsing the proposal.
The proposal is designed to cut down on traffic congestion, but residents are complaining that the loss of parking spaces is a non-starter.
According to City Council member Gale Brewer, contradictory traffic messages—with pedestrian crosswalk signs displaying stop and go signals at the same time—have become a common problem.
The New York Congestion Mitigation Commission laid out its plan for implementing congestion pricing below 60th Street in Manhattan in a report released on Thursday.
