Traffic Overhaul

We need to rethink our relationship with cars. Ken would advocate for a more equitable, market-driven congestion-pricing plan that discourages single rider cars from entering Manhattan and provides a dedicated revenue stream for public transit upgrades. Part of the impact Ken hopes to achieve is a reduction of traffic by large trucks that use the UWS as a pathway through the city. Ken believes it is also worth exploring a pilot program for residential parking permits for West Siders and nighttime delivery. Lastly, we need to add more traffic cameras and explore the creation of an Upper West Side “Slow Zone” similar to that in Downtown Brooklyn.
