June 5, 2019 - Max & Murphy Podcast: Is Vision Zero Stalled?

yd r marcoThe Vision Zero street safety program is one of Mayor Bill de Blasio's signature programs and its reductions in traffic fatalities one of his major accomplishments. But, pedestrian and cyclist deaths are up this year and, regardess of that spike or not, but especially because of it, advocates and some legislators say the de Blasio administration could and should do much more to improve street safety, make the city more pedestrian- and bike-friendly, and "break the car culture."

Marco Conner of Transportation Alternatives and City Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez, chair of the Council's transportation committee, joined the show to discuss the state of Vision Zero, street safety, and the mayor's record.
