NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – On New York City streets, where parking is free for all, you see plenty of out of state license plates taking up valuable space. One local lawmaker is proposing a big change that would curb the out-of-town invasion – residential parking permits. “It’s being done in big cities all over America it’s time for New York to catch up,” New York City council member Mark Levine said. One permit per household would let neighbors battle it out for parking, instead of everyone else from the Tri-state and far beyond. A portion of a Connecticut license plate seen in New York City.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – With an increasing number of cyclists on city streets and deaths skyrocketing in 2019, safety is becoming a serious issue in New York City. Mayor de Blasio has put a big focus on his “Vision Zero” initiative – focusing on police enforcement of drivers in the five boroughs. So what about the people who use Citi Bikes? Shouldn’t they take responsibility over their own safety? CBS2’s Marcia Kramer asked the mayor Wednesday whether helmets should be mandatory for bikers who want to share the road with cars and trucks. Take Our Poll “Given the fact that there’s been a lot of bicycle riders who have been hit, I wonder if you’ve thought about requiring people who rent Citi Bikes to wear helmets?” Kramer asked the mayor. “I have thought about that, it’s something we’re talking about inside the administration,” de Blasio replied.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A new plan aimed at improving street safety in the city will likely face speed bumps. The city council speaker wants more protected bike lanes, but drivers say more bikes will increase traffic problems. “I want a city where getting around doesn’t make you insane,” City Speaker Corey Johnson said. Johnson, along with transportation safety groups and bike lane advocates, are stumping for a proposed bill they claim will improve traffic, protect cyclists and pedestrians, and save lives. The idea is called “Streets Master Plan” and it would add 50 miles of protected bike lanes and 30 miles of bus lanes in the city every year. “We’ll do it in a way that prioritizes mass transit over automobiles and people over cars,” Johnson said. The idea comes as statistics from the group Traffic Alternatives shows a steep uptick in cyclist deaths. There have been 21 so far this year compared to 10 in all of 2018.
