The City of new York is undertaking some significant ways in order to sell Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ‘Vision Zero’ plan. Over the past few weeks, council members along with government officials have been participating in several town hall meetings in all of the five Boroughs in order to educate the public of the new measures that are supposed to dramatically reduce traffic fatalities to zero.
But there are many other ways the new administration is looking into in order to reach all communities and the various ethnicity groups in the city that English is not their number one language. In the video below, sent to JP by a reader, an NYPD van is seen parked outside Kingston avenue station in Crown Heights blaring over loudspeakers Mayor de Blasio’s plan in Yiddish. Chabad’s 770 yeshiva and Torah center is seen in the background.
The announcer explains the new rules that are to be implemented, mentioning Mayor de Blasio by name as the one who initiated and passed the plan, and urging drivers to take safety measures while driving. The announcement asks by-goers to visit the website NYC.gov/visionzero to learn more about the plan.
