I wonder if we are about to see a surge in enforcement of traffic violations now that this NYT article has been published:

While our local rate of traffic fatalities goes up, across the river in NYC it is going in the opposite direction.


Tellingly, nowhere in the article did a JC official suggest a law enforcement role in reduction. JCPD has apparently abdicated traffic enforcement. Anyone know how to find statistics on what cops do all day, like tickets and responses? I can't find anything.


I noticed the same; apparently, the only measures under consideration are redesign of roads and adding some calming measures (like the curb extensions) but ultimately we need to have enforcement that deals with the rampant flaunting of traffic rules, like running red lights, blowing past STOP signs, and failing to yield to pedestrians) but that seems like a third rail that everyone ignores or avoids.
