Uptowns Rodriguez And Others Talk Crashes, Hit And Runs Epidemic From Harlem To Hollis

February 24, 2021

Uptowns Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez and others talk about the other epidemic of crashes, hit and runs across New York City.

“We will continue conversations with City Hall, the City’s District Attorneys, my colleagues at the City Council, Families for Safe Streets, Transportation Alternatives, and advocates around this bill, which I am a co-prime sponsor along with Council Member Brad Lander, Speaker Johnson, and Council Member Stephen Levin.

It is important that as conversations continue we address the effectiveness of the Collision Investigative Squad and the need to either transfer certain responsibilities to the Department of Transportation or establish a mechanism of equal level of collaboration.

At the end of the day, our goal is to find a solution as to how we can effectively and efficiently review and investigate the hundreds of vehicular crashes that are yet to be resolved. The CIS is clearly in need of additional support, either through an increase in manpower or from the support of a city agency whose main objective is to make our roads safer for all New Yorkers. I strongly believe that the CIS in coordination with the Department of Transportation will become a more effective tool in decreasing the number of yearly crashes we see across the 5 boroughs.”

“Continuaremos las conversaciones con City Hall, los fiscales de los distritos de la ciudad, mis colegas del Consejo Municipal, Familias por calles seguras, Transportation Alternatives y defensores de este proyecto de ley, del que soy uno de los patrocinadores principales junto con el Concejal Brad Lander, El Presidente del Consejo Johnson y el Concejal Stephen Levin.

Es importante que a medida que continúen las conversaciones, abordemos la eficacia del equipo de investigación de colisiones y la necesidad de transferir ciertas responsabilidades al Departamento de Transporte o de establecer un mecanismo de igual nivel de colaboración.

Al final del día, nuestro objetivo es encontrar una solución sobre cómo podemos revisar e investigar de manera efectiva y eficiente los cientos de choques vehiculares que aún no se han resuelto. El CIS claramente necesita apoyo adicional, ya sea a través de un aumento en la mano de obra o del apoyo de una agencia de la ciudad cuyo objetivo principal es hacer que nuestras carreteras sean más seguras para todos los neoyorquinos. Creo firmemente que el CIS, en coordinación con el Departamento de Transporte, se convertirá en una herramienta más eficaz para reducir el número de accidentes anuales que vemos en los 5 condados “.
