This was at a TA meeting featuring him as the speaker. He talked about lots of great proposals he has surrounding downtown Brooklyn traffic calming and fuel-efficient taxis. The group also got into a debate about bridge tolls; David suggested we really need good data about who uses the bridges and whether it would disproportionately affect Brooklynites.
Most people just kept repeating the same arguments, but he’s absolutely right, though that’s tough data to gather. If you could write down license plate numbers, look them up, and then find information on the owners’ residences and workplaces, it could help a lot, though that’s not easy if you aren’t a government agency. The DOT is apparently quite reluctant to do any studies that might support things they don’t want.
