Legislators propose free parking for motorcycles in New York City

It's no secret that some of the most despised vehicle traffic laws in New York have to do with where and when people can leave their vehicles. In other words, there is nothing more infuriating for many people than getting a parking ticket.

Report shows that school bus drivers in major U.S. city are speeding, running red lights

Every morning thousands of parents here in New York and across the country drop their children off at the local school bus stop, trusting that the bus driver will transport their precious cargo to school safely. While this is exactly what happens the overwhelming majority of the time, there are unfortunate exceptions.

Speed cameras continuing to plague D.C. drivers

Are major corporations failing to pay NYC parking tickets?

New NYC campaign aims to decrease pedestrian accidents

The New York City Department of Transportation is hoping that a new campaign will decrease pedestrian accidents by increasing pedestrian alertness. The efforts are an alternative to implementing a new vehicle traffic law, and the hope is that a culture change among both pedestrians and drivers is all that is needed to improve safety. Distractions abound in today's mobile society. Consequently, pedestrians face a heightened risk of being involved in an accident due to their inattentive behavior. Whether it's talking or texting on a smart phone, listening to music or becoming otherwise distracted, too many pedestrians are stepping off of curbs into busy traffic without first looking both ways. Now, officials are hopeful that a simple awareness campaign strategy will produce the desired results. The central feature of the campaign is a logo entitled "LOOK," which will be emblazoned onto the crosswalk corners of the city's 110 most dangerous intersections for pedestrians.
