“They get a lot of compliance from motorists,” he said. “I want to congratulate everyone, everyone is paying attention and doing the right thing. So far, there have only been a need for two summons. “
De Blasio and, in particular, Governor Andrew Cuomo have expressed concerns that another wave of coronavirus infection could reach New York from other states.
