The one-way streets debate resumes Wednesday

The full Community Board 6 on Wednesday will get a chance to affirm--or go beyond--the Transportation Committee's request that the Department of Transportation (DOT) not proceed "at this time" to convert Sixth and Seventh avenues in Park Slope to one-way traffic.

Meanwhile, Aaron Naparstek, a member of the committee and the editor of Streetsblog, has found significant evidence to counter the contention by the DOT's Michael Primeggia that one-way streets are, in fact, safer. Primeggia, Naparstek writes in a letter to the Brooklyn Paper and at greater length on Streetsblog, has cherry-picked the evidence and ignores more recent studies that say one-way streets are a danger.
