Community leaders, law enforcement and concerned citizens came together with all levels of the Department of Transportation. personnel from the Bronx commissioner of traffic to the union workers who actually make the D.O.T.’s plans into reality by assembling equipment, installing signs and, of course paving and maintaining the streets of our city.

Officials clearly noted well laid out presentations that created a transparent view of how the Vision Zero plan is meant to bring about a better and safer quality of life for everyone without any false ideals. This workshop talked about all the ways to report dangerous traffic concerns and all the tools available to remedy the problems and how important it is for, “every New Yorker to become aware of the new public discourse on street safety, to appreciate the consequences of careless and dangerous behavior and to do their part to lend civility and consideration to the daily life and rhythm on the streets of our city.”
