Oh my! This has to stop... every driver that doesn't live in Roosevelt Island knows that they can speed, take illegal U turns, not stop at zebras, etc cause PSD does NOTHING about it.....
It's so sad that this happened, specially with a baby is involved AND the grandma.
And no charges? are you kidding me?? where's NYPD?? no show or PSD didn't call NYPD cause there was no blood!!!
come on!! for sure the car service suv has speeding and didn't want to wait for grandma to reach the sidewalk

It may be time to reconsider traffic lights with cameras. It may be necessary now due to the increased traffic.

The worst are the back roads that were originally designed as service rds & are now simply used by drivers that don't want to be bothered with any stop signs @ all.
