NYPD: 3 week traffic crackdown starts Monday
According to CBS News, the NYPD's latest traffic enforcement program starts Monday and ends July 6. Police will be paying special attention to speeding, driving with a cellphone, improper turns, ignoring traffic signs, and failing to yield to pedestrians. This initiative is the latest in Mayor de Blasio's Vision Zero program with works to reduce traffic and pedestrian deaths.
Last month's cellphone crackdown yielded 5,258 tickets in two days, while the speeding crackdown (also two days) netted 4,814 tickets.
