City Council Members Want NYPD To Crack Down On Reckless Driving
At almost every accident scene, there is a personal story. Erika Lefevre lost her son Mathieu on October 18, when he was riding his bicycle and hit by a truck in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
"I do not think that drivers who cause serious accidents or deaths should be able to walk away with no consequences," said Erika Lefevre.
Navigating city streets — on foot, by car, or bicycle — is no easy feat. But advocates and some City Council members said at a Wednesday joint meeting of the council's Transportation and Public Safety Committees in Downtown Manhattan said more must be done to crack down on reckless driving.
