NYC prosecutor arrested after cutting off unmarked police car

Prosecutors are used to enforcing the law. Now, for one Brooklyn prosecutor, the tables are turned, and he is the one being prosecuted for allegedly violating not only motor vehicle traffic laws, but also laws against resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and attempted assault of a police officer. It all started on a Saturday evening earlier this month, when the prosecutor was driving at a high speed in Queens, changing lanes without signaling on the Whitestone Expressway. According to court papers, he was driving so erratically that other cars on the road had to swerve to avoid hitting him. Unfortunately for him, one of the cars he cut off was an unmarked police car with four on-duty NYPD narcotics officers inside.

Stress, fatigue, other factors cause six percent increase in road fatalities on tax day

New statistics show dramatic spike in texting, cell phone citations

It appears that law enforcement officials throughout the state of New York have been going to great lengths to enforce one of the state's newer -- and decidedly more stringent -- vehicle traffic laws over the past six months.

Plea entered, sentencing scheduled after fatal wrong-way crash

The State of New York has many laws and regulations that apply to drivers on our roadways. Many of these laws address relatively minor issues, such as noise pollution, and the punishment for minor violations often comes in the form of fines.

Glaring traffic typo causes both laughter and concern

It goes without question that some of the most stringent vehicle traffic laws concern schools. Specifically, motorists are required to reduce their speeds and be prepared to stop so that children can make their way across the streets surrounding their schools safely. Generally, these traffic restrictions are denoted by specific street signs or "SCHOOL X-NG" warnings printed directly onto the pavement.

New York City sees record decline in traffic fatalities

Last week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the city had officially reached a rather impressive milestone concerning the number of annual traffic deaths. Specifically, Mayor Bloomberg indicated that the number of traffic fatalities in 2011 declined to the lowest level in 100 years, and that increased enforcement of vehicle traffic laws, re-engineering of city streets and public awareness campaigns were the most likely reason.
