    War on car

    This has nothing to do with “safety”, street by street the city is making life of driving harder and more miserable. This is pure agenda driven changes, and soon enough they will outlaw cars altogether. From bus lanes, bike lanes, pedestrian islands, pedestrians plazas, trees, and constant shrinking parking spots,….get ready, the war on cars is raging and escalating. Don’t be fooled, it has nothing to do with safety, it’s more control and more tickets.

    This city is impossible to live in with too many restrictions on owning and surviving having a car. The noise levels are high. The air is highly polluted. Buying or renting a home is astronomically out of the average person’s range of affordability. I think it is time we form a new community out of the city where it’s affordable and where people can thrive with a better quality of life all around.

    Agree with 2 & 3.

    I would put money down that this will not save any lives. There’s a war on cars in the city and I’m sure that frustrated drivers are more of a danger. They just take a way lanes for no reason (like eastern parkway) and make bus lanes where they were not needed (like rogers) which just makes more traffic.

    Those who say there is an anti car agenda – what’s inherently wrong with that? If Brooklyn is popular and populous, you can’t kick people out, but you can limit vehicular traffic to make things safer. Why is a war on cars not safety related? What sinister agenda is being hidden?

    This madness is everywhere, they put more restrictions on driving and parking, to promote their agenda to have more reasons to give tickets. When those officials who promote these changes, stop driving 10 car motorcades and private planes and start taking the train, it will give some validation. the hidden agenda is very simple, more government dictating (while they are exempt..) and more tickets to raise revenue in the name of “public safety and the environment” The same agencies who promote these draconian laws, did nothing to expand trains to more areas, keep them clean and affordable to encourage people… Read more »

    Sorry, but all the city is doing is driving away businesses. It is a well known fact that in order for businesses to thrive there has to be a proper infrastructure.
    How in the world can A1 Merchandise get deliveries in such a scenario. And many other businesses I believe will be forced to close.
    Shame on the city!
