Advocates call for city to ban all car traffic in Prospect Park

The activist group Transportation Alternatives is trying to convince the city to make Prospect Park completely car-free.



Group member Paul White says motorists using the park during the morning commute are regularly speeding.



"The park is a park, it's not a highway," he told News 12 Brooklyn.



Advocates successfully got the city to ban car traffic during the weekends in 2015. They are now calling for a total removal of cars to increase public safety.
