City officials reaching out to commuters face to face on importance of safe driving
The Department of Transportation, along with Vision Zero and the NYPD, handed out educational brochures Wednesday in Brooklyn.
DOT Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez toured the city to take a look at some of the top transportation issues plaguing the borough. The commissioner says they are committed to hearing from residents across the boroughs face to face as well as educating them on safe driving.
Officials are looking to encourage safer driving and hopefully save lives.
They handed out the pamphlets at the intersection of Nostrand and Atlantic avenues, a busy area known for reckless driving. The visit comes just a few days after a man in Bay Ridge was struck by a car and killed.
The commissioner says educating the public like they are doing now can help prevent such tragic accidents.
