NYPD Starts 21-Day Traffic Safety Initiative

The NYPD has recently announced its longest traffic crackdown. The crackdown will last 21 days and began on Monday, June 16. It will last until Sunday, July 6. Until then, the NYPD will focus on hazardous driving behaviors such as speeding, going through red lights, driving while using a cellphone, driving while texting, making improper turns, disobeying traffic signs, and failing to yield to pedestrians.

The NYPD said, “The traffic safety operation will focus on the most problematic intersections around the city and take place during all hours of the day.” We should expect an increase in police presence on Delancey Street and Queens Boulevard, among the many dangerous intersections in NYC.
