More legislative good news

Two more legislations passed last week that will improve our safety on the streets: 

  • the carting industry reform will limit the number of commercial gY6JQ-tchaulers in each of the service districts, thus reducing the overall ¬†miles travelled by commercial garbage trucks by 50%. This industry had continued to demonstrate its disregard for human life and for the laws.
  • the complete street legislation will require the DOT to comply with a complete street checklist or will be called to justify why a project do into include enough safety features for all users. This combined with the Maser Plan will be a potent incentive for the DOT to execute properly.
