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.

Can't understand the parking sign? There's an app for that ...

If you live in New York City and own a car then you have more than likely taken part in the ritual of trying to decipher some of the signs outlining the city's arcane parking regulations.

Sen. Schumer proposes funding to combat drugged driving

In our previous post, we discussed how the State Senate recently passed a new DUI-related law designed to punish particularly dangerous behavior such as reckless driving and wrong-way drunk driving.

City Council votes to terminate Sanitation Department stickers

Here in New York City, motorists are accustomed to the very real possibility that they can be issued a citation for any number of traffic violations on any given day, including speeding, parking in a restricted area, or driving with expired license tabs. However, there is one particular citation -- actually more of a public warning/humiliation -- that all New Yorkers universally dread: the window stickers attached by the Department of Sanitation scolding them for failing to move their cars during scheduled street cleanings.

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.
