City Reduces Free Cars and Parking For City Employees

The Daily News reports that about 200 city employees who got free cars and parking will have to turn in their keys starting next month. In the article Assistant Managing Director (and former BCGP President) Jeffrey A. Friedman stated that the administration is adopting a new general standard for take-home-car privileges. They should be limited, he said, to officials who need to respond to off-hour emergencies about once a week.

Kudos to the City for walking the walk and we welcome the 200 new potential bicyclists, pedestrians and transit riders.
