NYC: The Reckless Driver Accountability Act

From Brklyner:

Councilmember Brad Lander announced new legislation aimed at keeping dangerous drivers off the road—especially those who have racked up multiple violations within a year. …

“We can’t bring Abigail, Joshua, and Sophia back to their families. But by confronting reckless driving to prevent future deaths, we will do all we possibly can to make their memory into a blessing,” said Councilmember Brad Lander. “Even with the good work we’ve done through Vision Zero, being hit by a vehicle is the main cause of injury-related death for children under 14, and the second most common cause for seniors in New York City. The Reckless Driver Accountability Act takes an innovative, data-driven, and restorative approach that will make NYC a leader in reducing dangerous driving and saving lives.”
