City officials tell taxi drivers to lay off their horns

From busy streets and pushy pedestrians to noisy neighbors and crowded subways, there are certain realities of big city life that most New Yorkers simply accept as being unavoidable.

Report: Motorists should keep an eye out for deer during the autumn

Here in New York, many people set aside time during the autumn months to drive to their cabins or see the vivid fall colors in other states.

New York City police ramp up enforcement of texting ban

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) has increased the number of texting-while-driving tickets it has been issuing recently. Within the first eight months of this year, NYPD has already issued 1,857 tickets, up from the 1,631 tickets it gave out in all of 2010.

Red-light cameras are bringing in big money in New York City

In these tough economic times, several major U.S. cities have found a new cash cow: Red light cameras that are bringing in big bucks every time they film a traffic violation.In fact, our very own New York City has found that red light cameras are a big source of extra income. How big? Last year, the city nabbed more than $52 million in fines, according to a recent story in the New York Daily News.The cameras, mounted at busy intersections, routinely film motorists as they are running red lights. In fact, there are now 150 red light cameras in our fair city.

Port Authority on the verge of major toll increase

Those who live, work and play in New York and New Jersey are all too familiar with the many tolls situated on the area's bridges and tunnels. (In fact, many are also probably familiar with the traffic violations/citations that can result from accidentally forgetting to pay these tolls.)

More Internal Affairs investigators showing up in traffic court

In the aftermath of the ticket fixing scandal that rocked New York City earlier this year - particularly the Bronx - officials with the New York Police Department's Internal Affairs (IA) Bureau have been working overtime to uncover any potential improprieties on the part of police officers in issuing traffic violations.

Are New York's traffic roundabouts causing more accidents than they are preventing?

Over the years, public safety officials have devised a variety of methods to reduce the number of traffic violations and serious accidents caused by both poor road design and human error.
