De Blasio Traffic Safety Announcement Coming Up in Queens Today

11:46 AM EST on January 15, 2014

This afternoon, Mayor de Blasio is expected to be joined by Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg at a press conference about traffic safety. The event is at PS 152, near the site where 8-year-old Noshat Nahian was killed by an unlicensed tractor-trailer driver last month.

We'll see what the details are, but it's encouraging to see the multi-agency participation in this announcement. You could count on one hand the number of times Ray Kelly showed up at a public event about traffic safety.

Streetsblog's Stephen Miller and Streetfilms' Clarence Eckerson will be filing reports from the event, as will most of the City Hall press corps.
