  • It's not Vision Zero policy because they are slower. It's because New York drivers are rude and have no sense. You see daily ambulances with sirens on and the drivers do not even move a side even abit. You never know if the patient is in a serious condition or not.

  • Literally everyday I see a stupid thing added on the streets that serves no purpose, just wasting money. Bikers are the true problems everything else is just overkill and is contributing to even worse congestion

  • Ban that bullshit that piece of shit asshole!!!! FUCKING MAYOR IS AN ASSHOLE!!!!!! REMOVE THAT SHIT REMOVE THAT SHIT!!!!!!!!

  • Increase more Staffing? That's funny coming from the union rep because he increase staff members means they can collect more union dues

  • No! It's the traffic and the people are very rude! Firefighter's and Paramedics and Police can't get thru because people won't move. Or you got stuff going on in the streets that don't need to be going on, or people parking in ways that a Emergency Vehicles can't get through! It's like people think that Firefighter's are putting on there lights and sirens just to say hello, when it's to say get you're "Ass"! Out of the way! Somebody's in Trouble and needs "HELP"!. No you need more streets open better, and better Traffic Control!. 9/21/19 SCROPION VIPER.
