Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday called for tougher state laws to get dangerous drivers off the streets of New York City. The call comes after 1yr old Joshua Lew and 4yr old Abigail Blumenstein were killed on 9th Street at 5th Avenue in Brooklyn back on March 5th, 2018. If the Mayor gets his way, drivers would see an expansion of the speed camera enforcement program, progressively higher fines and registration revocation for the worst drivers. Mayor de Blasio also wants doctors to notify the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles of medical incidents that cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle.

“In the wrong hands, a car can be a deadly weapon. We are fighting on every front to make our streets safer, but we need Albany’s help to keep dangerous drivers off the road, before we lose another life,” said the Mayor.

“The NYPD continues to make New York City streets safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers, resulting in the fewest traffic fatalities ever last year,” said Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill. “This proposed legislation would provide us with additional tools to enhance safety, enforce the law, and keep dangerous drivers off the street.”

“After last week’s tragedy in Park Slope, we must act to prevent future tragedies – whether via legislation, street redesign or enforcement.” said NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg. The 44yr old driver of the white Volvo involved in this deadly crash has since had her Driver License suspended but has not been charged, as the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad continues their Investigation.
