What caught our attention from Stephen's questionnaire/interview:
"..the State Legislature must pass legislation to increase the number of red light cameras and allow speed cameras. I will continue to lobby vigorously for these measures in order to protect the lives of all New Yorkers. I also believe that, while the measures taken by the NYPD to reform the Crash Investigation Squad (CIS) are a strong step in the right direction, more must be done."

StreetsPAC's Endorsement Announcement:
Levin has established a reputation as one of the City Council's staunchest advocates for safe and livable streets.  He has introduced legislation to expand the size of the NYPD's Collision Investigation Squad, pushed for traffic calming on some of Brooklyn's most dangerous streets, and championed Brooklyn's first Neighborhood Slow Zone, in Boerum Hill.  One of the Council’s first Citi Bike annual members, he recently launched a petition calling on the city to expand the bike-sharing system to Greenpoint.  Levin is committed to leading the effort to transform Jay Street, a critical but dysfunctional pedestrian, transit and cycling corridor that runs through his district, into a model complete-street that safely serves the needs of all users.
