NYC - City Council Bill to Stop Red Light Blitz in Central Park

Council Members Rodriguez and Gentile are planning to introduce a bill that would mandate traffic signals in parks be flashing yellow, when the park drives are closed to vehicular traffic. In January and February Central Park Precinct has issued 230 tickets to cyclists going through red lights when the park was closed to vehicular traffic. The fine is $270. This bill needs additional sponsors to pass. The bill will be introduced next week. Contacting your now local Council Member is important.

This link on the NYCC's Message Board has all the relevant information.

Funny, that link says the bill would include Forest Park too, but I think there's only one traffic light there, and it's been turned off for years.

Absolutely amazing that City Council has to pass a bill to get the police to act with some common sense.

I'm going to be submitting the petition on the 23rd at the meeting, if any of you-alls know anyone who wants to sign.

1559 signatures and counting!
