This is not what they mean by “Vision Zero.”
The Brooklyn Paper is starting to bang the drum about the complete lack of speeding enforcement by some of Brooklyn’s police precincts:
Officers in Park Slope’s 78th Precinct did not issue a single speeding ticket in June — echoing their approach to speeding enforcement in May, records indicate. Cops at the 77th Precinct in Prospect Heights and Crown Heights followed suit, giving out no speeding tickets last month after issuing just one over the previous 30 days, while police at Fort Greene and Clinton Hill’s 88th Precinct ticketed two speeding motorists — up from one in May.
These precincts have, however, issued hundreds of tickets to drivers for tinted windows, making me wonder if tinted windows tickets are the stop-and-frisk of moving violations.
We’ll see how the precincts do for July.
