New York City Council passes Vision Zero legislation

The New York city council has passed a new legislation for ensuring and ameliorating the traffic security.  Actually, the council had voted for the “Vision Zero” plan which is designed to eliminate the death of motorists, cyclists and pedestrian in the nation’s largest city.
Besides,   some changes in driving have also been made. There will be some “Slow zones” in the city where motorists would drive their cars at 20 mph speed. Reckless drivers will be penalized with tougher penalties.
It goes without saying that Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverit told to media reporters that “We have created this plan in order to keep our streets safe and we are committed to ensure safety of our people”. She further opined that it is the right time to implement this plan because last year more than 286 people died in accidents in New York.
Apart from this, Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, chair of the council’s transportation committee said that “we are going to change the culture of how pedestrian, cyclists and drivers interact and we want to ensure safety for all”.
The council further proposed that all the broken signals of the city will be fixed in the 24 hours and there will be 120 new cameras to check the speed.  Lastly, the new plans to announce speed alarms and speed bumps are also under consideration.
