New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez in April announced new incentives to help reduce truck deliveries during the busiest hours of the day to improve traffic safety, protect the environment, and combat daytime congestion and double-parking. The agency will allocate $6 million to incentivize businesses receiving deliveries overnight. It’s a shame that DOT didn’t do this years ago when it was first suggested and instead went gung-ho supporting a congestion tax.
