The NYPD is placing significant emphasis on a multifaceted pedestrian and cyclist safety operation during the week of May 10th through May 16th. This effort is anchored by increased focus on combating motorists who speed and fail to yield to pedestrians and cyclists. It is a comprehensive, citywide operation, to be carried out in all 77 patrol precincts. The effort will incorporate all the Transportation Bureau's units and deploy additional Patrol Services. Each Precinct will assign their traffic safety team to participate in these stepped-up efforts to combat traffic injuries. Officers will concentrate their enforcement on drivers who speed and drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians and cyclists. Enforcement will be focused at specific intersections and the corresponding corridors where the data shows a high frequency of pedestrian and cyclist injuries as a result of being struck by a vehicle. NYPD Highway Patrol will focus enforcement efforts on high-crash highways to catch speeding before dangerous drivers come into close proximity with the cyclists and pedestrians. The Traffic Enforcement District will focus its high-volume enforcement on vehicles that are obstructing bike lanes while parked, and it has specifically dedicated enforcement resources in each borough to keep bike lanes clear for cyclists. Vehicles that are summonsed for obstructing a bike lane are eligible to be towed to the NYPD's violation tow pound.

Republican Infrastructure Counterproposal Mostly Eliminates Climate Spending Biden met for almost two hours yesterday with the top congressional leaders from both parties, following meetings earlier in the week with Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who are key swing votes. The president also met this week with Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), chair of the Environment and Public Works Committee, who has urged Biden to keep a broad definition of infrastructure that includes climate action. For all the motion around bipartisanship, though, it's not clear what progress has been made. Republicans emerged yesterday from the Oval Office talking about the need to define "infrastructure" and their unwillingness to raise taxes — the same hang-ups that have stalled talks for weeks. Democrats said electric vehicles remain a major disagreement. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he wanted his full caucus to help shape the package rather than settling it among congressional leaders, potentially foreshadowing the kind of long negotiations that progressives have warned against. That also raises the stakes for today's meeting between Biden and committee-level Republicans. And House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) pointed to this week's inflation data from the Labor Department, which found a 0.8% rise in consumer prices month over month. U.S. central bankers have said short-term inflation reflects "transitory" pandemic production see here shortfalls and reopening pressures, rather than structural economic problems. But Republicans are pointing to that same data to argue Biden risks overheating the economy. "Those numbers we heard today on inflation, that should terrify every American," McCarthy said. "The idea that spending more trillions of dollars into this economy when you have a supply constraint, is actually the reverse that you want to do to keep America [growing] and make sure we don't have the inflation," he said. After the White House meeting, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she was more optimistic about passing something "in a bipartisan way." "But we'll see," she added.
