‘Don't Block the Box' Coming Back to 50 Key NYC Intersections

"Don't Block the Box" is back, part of an effort to reduce traffic congestion around New York City. 

Called "Clear Intersections," the program will have block-the-box violations "aggressively enforced" at 50 key crossings in the five boroughs, the mayor's office said in a statement Monday.

The NYPD will hire an additional 50 cops to deal with intersection violations. Violators face minimum fines of $115 and points on their license.
