New York City officials announced a plan on tuesday that will install 1,500 barriers to protect pedestrians from vehicle attacks in high profile areas. Ydanis Rodriguez who introduced the legislation said the barriers will make New York an “even safer, more walkable city.” The city recently conducted a review on how to secure streets and public spaces in light of recent vehicular terror attacks. Two recent incidents took place in the past year one in November which killed eight people and another in May which killed one. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said about the 50 million dollar plan “"You've seen the temporary barriers, but we knew we needed long-term solutions, permanent barriers, integrated into the life of the city.”
