    Driver inattention is probably one of the biggest threats to everyone’s safety in my opinion. A good ole fashion stand out on L and Broadway with signs saying “Put down your Cell” “Stop looking at your phone- YOU’RE DRIVING” etc. would be a nice message to deliver to commuters.

      Yes, let’s replace the phone there staring it with massive flashing signs. And then when someone hits a pedestrian we can all throw our arms up about how we have to get rid of these distracting flashing signs. Genius.

        You’re a total idiot — politicians et al hold signs to get their message across all the time- it works and their NOT flashing signs- check your meds – your making stuff up now.
