A New York Times op-ed writer has written an op-eds piece titled “Don’t Trust the Experts”.
“In a city where drivers drive more than 50 miles per hour and cyclists spend the most time on the road, we can expect more accidents to occur in the next decade, according to a new study.”
“New York’s roads will have to change, faster, to get us all back on track.”
The article argues that, at a time when congestion is the number one problem facing the city, a road repair programme should focus on improving road safety.
“The experts who advise the city on how to deal with road congestion have not been able to solve the congestion problem for the past two decades,” the writer wrote.
“In the meantime, our roads are already riddled with dangerous road users, many of whom don’t have a driver’s license.
It’s time to do something about it.”
As New York prepares for the arrival of winter, a major problem facing city planners is the city’s roads.
The problem is exacerbated by the fact that New York’s streets are so busy that they require almost as much road maintenance as an average driver spends on gas, which costs about $9.50 a gallon.
This is why a New York State study in the New York Post found that New Yorkers spend an average of 5 hours and 15 minutes per day commuting to work, compared to the city of Los Angeles where commuters spend an hour and 45 minutes per week.
In order to reduce congestion, a strategy would be to build more streets that have better drainage, better sidewalks, better bike lanes and better street lighting.
A city where traffic jams are the number two problem facing cities, a city that is a hub of international trade, and a city in which drivers drive 55 to 80 miles per day would be a perfect place for such a scheme.
But even if the city were to do this, the streets would still need to be maintained.
According to a study by the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), a study conducted in the US in 2010, there were 7,500 road maintenance workers in New York and New Jersey.
If a road were to be repaired every two days, that would add up to $12,000 a day.
It is also estimated that if every road was repaired every four days, the cost of maintenance would increase to $36,000 per day.
The cost of repairs would increase in a city like London.
As an example, the capital city of London, with a population of nearly one million people, spends about $5 billion a year on road repairs.
Of course, a new road would cost much less, so the cost per mile would increase.
However, a New Yorker would still have to pay about $2,500 a month for the same amount of time to commute.
And while the average person spends just over $10,000 each year to drive to work in the United States, the average New Yorker is only spending about $20,000 to commute, according the ITE study.
Moreover, the costs associated with road repairs are even higher than the cost to maintain the roads.
According to the ITES, the maintenance costs associated are estimated at $2.5 billion, while the costs of repairs are estimated to be about $16 billion.
Even if the New Yorkers who were to take part in the road repair scheme spent the same money as the average American, the time spent would be less than a week and the time saved would be more than a day compared to spending that amount of money.
What about drivers?
The article by New York Journalist Chris Hedges has prompted some criticism from drivers, as the article focuses on road repair.
“[New York City drivers] have to spend hours a day, often working late into the night, to make sure that their cars are in good shape and their brakes are working properly,” Mr Hedges wrote.
He went on to say that he has heard from drivers who say they are annoyed because the road repairs were not done at night.
While it is true that drivers are required to work late into an early evening, they can do so by using their car’s “night time” feature, or by driving during the daylight hours.
Other drivers, however, have said that the time they spend in the car, is often not as valuable as the time in the streets.
Although this argument does not necessarily make a case for the need for a road-repair scheme, it is one that has generated some backlash from drivers.
Drivers are also being told to pay more attention to their speed.
“The only way to reduce traffic is to get the cars on the roads as fast as possible, to ensure that they are safe,” Mr Shultz told The Times.
“Drivers need to know
