It all comes down to overhead power lines. We're told that burying the remaining vulnerable overhead lines in the outer boroughs is just completely cost-prohibitive. But mass outages and their exponential impact aren't exactly cost-effective.

I am a certified driver rehabilitation specialist. We evaluate medically at risk drivers. I was also on the DMVMedical advisory board in 1988. We worked hard and little happened. NYS vehicle and traffic Law calls for such a board. Not implemented in last 20 years. Start there.

Three things we learned from yesterday’s storm: 1️⃣ Five-boro resiliency plan needs to happen ASAP. 2️⃣ The case for has never been stronger. 3️⃣ will have to deal with more downed trees from more storms to come. They need more funding & infrastructure.

I told , I can get off the bus at Sanford and walk to the 7 “but what about seniors or those with mobility issues? Waiting 20 minutes to go 3 blocks is obscene,” And I reminded electeds: “PEOPLE WHO RIDE THE BUS ARE YOUR CONSTITUENTS TOO.”

The state DoT wants to spend $10 Million to widen a highway to save a few seconds when people like this want to come into our community. But they drag their feet for any pedestrian or bike improvement. What priorities.

Instead of spending millions of dollars to tweak the Long Island Expressway in Bayside, we should invest in sustainable transport. Bike lanes have an excellent return on investment, and they don’t destroy the planet.

Around 5:20 PM, as I was crossing from the northwest corner of 82nd Ave & Bell Blvd towards the southwest corner, a white conversion van, made a sharp turn at speed turning from Northbound Bell Blvd to Westbound 82nd Ave. He came within 3 feet of me. 3/

Although he turned recklessly at speed, he stopped & rolled down his window to tell me that my clothing wasn’t bright enough — I was wearing a bright red jacket. I yelled at him, “you’d see people if you would slow the fuck down!” He then sped off. 4/

You might hear, 'Bell Blvd' and assume the entire street looks like the strip near the LIRR station. But for most of its length Bell Blvd is a relatively wide street through residential neighborhoods. without a lot of traffic... a recipe for speeding. 9/

To my knowledge, despite multiple injuries, deaths, and requests from both residents and elected officials CB11 hasn’t discussed safety on Bell Blvd EVEN ONCE. Ever had an incident on Bell Blvd? Please reply to this thread and share. /end

Now that we know about NYS-DOT can't be proposing a widening, right???? Shut it down . Complete waste of money that will make things worse.
