Distracted driving crackdown in NYC

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - For the third time in the last month, the New York City Police Department is cracking down on distracted drivers.

The 'Vision Zero' plan targets drivers and bicyclists who fail to follow the rules of the road.

Cops will be on the lookout across the city for drivers who are speeding, running red lights, texting or surfing the Internet while driving and failing to yield to pedestrians, to name a few of the possible violations.

More then 10,000 tickets have been issued since Mayor Bill de Blasio's 'Vision Zero' plan was initiated.

The latest crackdown runs through July 6.

    Polluted Gowanus Canal doesn't scare away neighborhood development

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
