Health Commissioner Takes Aim at Risky Habits, Including Speeding

November 18, 2010

New York City Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley will deliver the keynote address at the “Stop Speeding Summit” at 11:45 a.m. on Friday, November 19, 2010, at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University.

Media coverage is invited.

Sponsored by the nonprofit group Transportation Alternatives, the Stop Speeding Summit is a groundbreaking event to address the pervasive effects that speeding has on many aspects of New Yorkers’ lives -- from the health of children precluded from outdoor play, to the billions of dollars that these crashes cost society in medical, emergency services, rehabilitation, property damage and travel delays every year.

The full-day event will bring together elected officials and leaders in the fields of transportation policy, public health, medicine, traffic safety and enforcement. Interactive panel discussions and presentations will cover the extent and impact of speed-related crashes and best practices in enforcement and policing.

The Summit will take place at NYU Wagner’s home in the Puck Building, 295 Lafayette Street (at the corner of Houston Street), 2nd Floor, New York, N.Y.
