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.
