NYPD issues 50,000+ summonses during new Dusk & Darkness initiative
Mayor de Blasio announced a new online crash tracker, which shows the city's most dangerous intersections. According to ABC News, the tracker is part of the mayor's recent Dusk and Darkness initiative, which was announced last month. Dusk and Darkness focuses on decreasing collisions during the early evening hours of fall and winter, when they are 40% more likely than in other seasons.
In addition to the tracker, police will be looking for driver who speed during the evening rush hour, do not yield to pedestrians, text and drive, and block the bike lanes. The NYPD has already issued over 50,000 summonses for moving violations during the initiative.
