Is New York City prepared for the increase in bike traffic?

Over the next few years, New York City will undergo something of a transformation as more bike lanes are added to city streets and bridges, and city officials roll out a new bicycle-sharing program.

NYC comes in at No. 20 on 'worst drivers' list

A few days ago, Allstate Insurance Company released a highly anticipated and much discussed report ranking U.S. cities according to who has the so-called best and worst drivers.

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.

Statewide DUI enforcement campaign now in effect through Labor Day

Now that summer is officially winding down, people across the state of New York will be looking to maximize their time spent outdoors before the leaves start to fall and the gray skies return.

However, one of the staples of all of these outdoor events is alcohol and with this abundance of alcohol comes an increased risk of motorists driving under the influence (DUI).
