City Councilman Mark Treyger proposes putting sirens on snowplows after 2 deadly accidents in Brooklyn
BROOKLYN - A city councilman from Brooklyn is proposing adding flashing lights and sirens to snowplows after two deadly accidents this year in the borough.
Councilman Mark Treyger (D-Brooklyn) says he wants to require warning triggers on snowplows so people will be able to know when they're coming. The bill would affect Department of Sanitation plows, those contracted by the city and private plows.
Treyger's proposal comes after a 36-year-old pregnant woman in Sunset Park and a man in Brighton Beach were hit and killed by snowplows.
