This afternoon, DOT crews were out on Second Street between Avenue B and First Avenue to install "speed reducers" (aka speed bumps!) along the corridor, as EVG regular Salim points out...
And here's a look at the new WIP bump between Avenue A and First Avenue... a stretch where we've seen plenty of speeding TBH...
Looks like just one bump per block. Residents can request these speed reducers via the city at this link
Fourth Street is getting speed bumps too. Post is here
Awesome. Too many pedestrians/bicyclists suffer because people won't drive responsibly. About time.
This way the NYPD still doesn’t have to enforce driving laws! Hurray!
I have never seen anyone speeding on 2nd St but who am I to question a feckless corrupt administration whose mayor absconded with over $900 million for some fake mental health initiative while the city has become an open air version of Bellevue.
It'd be great if StuyTown Management cared enough about its tenants and did the same to slow down the E-Bikes and MOTORCYCLES (Yes I did say that) that go roaring around the Pedestrian walkways here.
they really should also put those on 2nd between 1st and 2nd ave as well. The way the two one ways meet each other at that intersection is sketch as hell. Multiple times ive seen cars from the west barrel down against traffic between 1st and A because they cant see the plethora of signs pointing out the one way change...
Speed bumps are worse than useless because drivers speed up after going over them. Get rid of them!
It would be better if they could fill in the Diblasio Spiderhole outside 338 East 6th St where the sidewalk washed out during the hurricane - we're kind of tired of having to walk out into the street on Carlina's Way.
Speed bumps are of course not effective when they are one per block as mentioned earlier since drivers have enough street space to speed after passing them in order to “make “ the next traffic lights. We need multiple speed humps per block.
Love the speed bumps, hope to see more.
I used the link to request them on avenue B to help calm down drivers on the open street. The disregard and lack of enforcement is dangerous
Just reduce and enforce a 20 mph speed limit. That way, the avenues will see improvement as well. (Most of the speeding and killings occur on the avenues, anyway.)
But I agree with the commenter above, this just takes NYPD off the hook for simply doing their jobs.
I don't get it; you don't often see drivers speeding on Streets the way they do on Avenues; the entire vision zero faux initiative is nothing but a hoax to make DeBlasio appear pro active in dealing with the assault by drivers against pedestrians and cyclists. How about some law enforcement so a driver will have to think twice before he/she decides to speed down a street? Given zero penalties, killing people with your vehicle along with hit and run have becoming nothing more than sport.
Bicycles are part of the problem. Nobody obeys any rules.
"Bicycles are part of the problem. Nobody obeys any rules." Bicycles are the reason cars are speeding because they don't obey the rules? I wouldn't call that comment totally off kilter but I will say it lacks logic.
