THE BRONX - A town hall meeting on Mayor Bill de Blasio's Vision Zero plan to make New York City streets safer was held Tuesday night in the Bronx.

More than 100 people attended the meeting, which gave residents a chance to share their biggest concerns about traffic safety in the borough. They also gave their input on which projects they think should be a priority.

Attending the meeting were representatives from the Department of Transportation, police officers and City Councilman Ritchie Torres (D-Bronx).

The town hall was held at the Bronx Library Center on East Kingsbridge Road. Two more meetings will be held in the Bronx in May.
