A recent article by Ashley Fetters for Curbed New York suggests your fears are not totally unfounded.

For partiers of all ages, riding in a stretch limousine may seem like the epitome of luxury. Stretch limos are also regarded as a prudent way to party, with much less risk than drinking and driving. But a recent horrific stretch limousine accident that killed 20 people outside of Albany has raised many concerns about the vehicle’s safety.

The son of a Queens woman who died two weeks after being struck by a hit-and-run driver has been forced to hunt down the suspect without much help from police, the devastated family said Tuesday. Luka Krstic, a 34-year-old doctor, doggedly canvassed local shops in Ridgewood for security video before finding footage that showed a white car slamming into his mom, Draga Krstic, at 60th St. and Myrtle Ave. on July 1.

The city’s subway system is rife with an alarming array of dangerous problems, from broken speedometers to faulty signal gauges, radios and safety cameras, workers told The Post. Up to 90 percent of the speedometers on the D line don’t work, and more than 50 percent of the gauges on B and R trains are broken, forcing subway operators to go exceedingly slow on many sections of track to avoid tripping signals and emergency brakes, the employees said.

A subway rail improperly attached to the roadbed led to 39 straphangers getting hurt, two subway cars wrecked — and the MTA on the hook for $3.4 million. That's the conclusion of an MTA probe into the June 27, 2017, derailment of an A train in Harlem. Most of the expense of the crash — $3.1 million — was what it cost to replace the two cars that had to be scrapped. The rest included $194,047 in parts and labor from the Division of Signals, $105,637 from the Division of Infrastructure and $2,144 in labor from the Division of Track.
