Crack down on bad taxi drivers

The number of tickets issued by the Taxi and Limousine Commission to cab drivers for safety-related violations has nearly doubled compared to this time last year. It’s part of the Vision Zero initiative to crackdown on traffic safety violations. The TLC which is in charge of regulating taxis issued the summonses for speeding, tailgating, ignoring stop signs and unsafely changing lanes. 4, 812 tickets were issued in 2014 through Aug. 31. http://dlvr.it/73rfgl

Embracing or rejecting the hug

On this night I didn’t have to ask to hug it out with a stranger in Grand Central. That no one slugged me and very few rejected my advances perhaps represents an example of the hug’s rise to prominence. In this age where we seem to regard handshakes, fist-pounds and high-fives as secondary greetings, tactics to avoid unwanted or awkward hugs would seem more valuable than ever before. http://dlvr.it/73rff2

Teen reaches top of tallest residential building

When it’s completed early next year, 432 Park Ave. will be the tallest residential building in New York City. But that didn’t stop a teen from becoming the latest person to scale a tall structure in the city. The NYPD arrested Demid Lebedev, 17, of Jackson Heights, Queens after he climbed to the top of the building and posted photos of his escapade on Instagram. The so-called “urban historian” faces multiple charges including criminal trespass and reckless endangerment. http://dlvr.it/73qxyZ
