    From the Gothamist article:

    “Data-driven enforcement is a part Vision Zero, but the NYPD is not doing data-driven policing,” said Transportation Alternatives Director Paul Steely White. “Instead they are policing by some historic bias that I don’t understand.”

    Kevin’s comment:
    I understand this bias and bigotry quite well. I’ve got a feeling that the overwhelming majority of the victims of this bias also fully and 100% understand it.
