Brooklyn, NY DA Creates ‘Street Safety Bureau’ to Bolster Crash Investigation, Draft New Laws (War on Cars Watch)

The Brooklyn District Attorney will create a new Street Safety Bureau to beef up the NYPD’s poor investigation and follow-through on traffic violence cases — and work with lawmakers to create new bills to combat vehicular violence, the office will announce this morning.

The goal is to protect cyclists and pedestrians after a particularly deadly year on the streets of Brooklyn, and ahead of a return to more cars on the road alongside more people walking and biking — creating the likelihood for more deadly clashes.
