Here’s a breaking news flash for all of the readers of Hot Air. We have it on good authority that the traffic in New York City is frequently… pretty bad. On top of that, the metro system is a dangerous mess, so getting around can often be a time consuming chore. (I know you’re shocked, but it’s true.) Well, Mayor Bill de Blasio has been made aware of the problem and he’s determined to do something about it.
So what’s the root cause of all this mayhem on the motorways? Clearly, according to the Mayor, it’s all those darn cars. And now there’s a plan being rolled out to put them in their place. (CBS New York)
Mayor Bill de Blasio is set to sign a massive redesign of city streets, favoring buses and bikes over cars. The mayor was on board an M-14 bus during the Monday evening commute, asking riders how they felt about the new 14th Street busway…
The sweeping agenda calls for transforming streets to speed up buses and make it safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
“For too long, things have been stacked in car drivers’ favor and away from other people that need to use our city streets,” said Johnson.
