NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York City is installing more speed cameras near schools as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero plan.
The announcement was made Tuesday outside Public School 95 in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. The Department of Transportation has classified the area as a high-crash corridor.
“Our kids are going to be safer walking to school and coming home because of this new enforcement,” de Blasio said in a statement. “We are sending a powerful message that we take safety near our schools seriously and we will enforce the law to keep children safe.”
