NEW YORK - Two new mayors, two big cities, two unfortunate traffic incidents. But one incident - in Los Angeles - was viewed as awkward and sad, while the other - in New York - has become yet another irritant for Mayor Bill de Blasio. Maybe the differing reactions reflect the differences between the cities. To recap: De Blasio has been under fire for traffic violations committed by his convoy after he had vowed to crack down on dangerous drivers. In his first extensive public comments on Thursday's incident, De Blasio on Monday said, "I don't tell the NYPD how to do their work when it comes to protecting me. " De Blasio and the New York police commissioner, Bill Bratton, have said the NYPD officers who provide security and transport to the mayor are specially trained to watch for possible threats and to drive accordingly.

Attorneys for Los Angeles have recommended that the City Council pay $185,000 to settle a lawsuit over a car crash involving Councilman Jose Huizar, according to records and interviews. The payment stems from an incident in 2012, in which Huizar - driving a city-owned SUV - rear-ended a car driven by David Ceja, a former Huntington Park police officer. Humberto Guizar, Ceja's lawyer, described the payment as a compromise, saying that he could have "possibly gotten a seven-figure amount" had the case gone to trial.
