New York city has one of the highest rates of car-to-car collisions in the country, and the city is facing a major problem with the roads.
As of June 2018, the city had 7,847 car-related fatalities, which is a staggering rate of 7,914 per day.
The city’s transportation department has identified the problem as a lack of street sweeters in New York’s neighborhoods.
The problem stems from a lack in the number of street sweep trucks in the city, and in particular the lack of reliable and affordable street sweepers in the New York area.
According to the city’s department of transportation, a single street sweeping truck is used to sweep up the most significant cars in a given neighborhood, while another one is used for other streets.
The sweeper is often used as part of the citywide street sweep plan, which has been in place for several years.
In an effort to combat the high rate of car collisions in New Yorks neighborhoods, the New York City Council has created the “Street Sweeper” program, which aims to raise the percentage of street sweeping trucks on the road by 30 percent by 2020.
The program, developed by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, aims to make streets more safe by increasing the number and size of streetsweep trucks in New york.
“This is a program that has a long history in the streets of New York, but for many years we haven’t had a vehicle that can be used in these areas,” de Blasio said.
“And so we wanted to create this program, and we think it’s going to be the biggest one ever, because it’s actually going to raise awareness among our community.”
As part of his program, the mayor is also investing $50 million into a new street swepler truck that can run for 30 days at a time, with a top speed of 25 mph.
This truck is part of a fleet of two, and will be ready for use by the end of the year.
The $50-million-dollar truck will be manufactured by a New York-based company, and has been developed to the specifications of New yorks own fleet of street-sweeping trucks.
The $50m-dollar-truck is expected to be ready in 2019.
“What it will do is, it will be able to work on the streets on weekends, it’ll work on weekends on weekdays, it can work on Sundays,” de la Cruz said.
“And so you can go on Sundays, weekends, work on Sunday mornings, and Sunday mornings.”
According to a Department of Transportation website, the street swepper is used in the following areas:Bramble Hill-Manhattan-Staten IslandNew York City-Queens-SuffolkQueens City-Statens Island-Westchester-Statenes Island-BrooklynBrooklyn-Statena-ManhattenQueens IslandQueens, New YorkThe city of New Yrsc is hoping to increase the number, size and quality of street sweeps by purchasing and installing thousands of street sprinklers and street sweep machines.
The Mayor is also calling for the creation of a citywide “street sweep task force” that will be tasked with identifying and funding a fleet and creating a program to implement it.
De la Cruz believes the city should invest in more street sweep cars as part the program.
“We should do more, we need to invest more, and it is not going to happen if we don’t have the proper infrastructure to do that,” he said.
New york’s street sweep program is expected by 2019, but will not be fully operational until the next year.
