Bronx delegate Willie Mitchell, 32, is in his third year as a traffic enforcement agent. While the contract is “overshadowing everything,” he says, unfair disciplinary procedures and added duties are also important issues. Traffic agents now have to write up accident reports, escort pedestrians across the street as part of the Vision Zero program, and report stolen cars—“not that it’s a hard job, but it adds to our job, without pay.” He believes that punishments are “too severe,” given that traffic agents’ salaries are much lower than those in other uniformed services. Five days without pay for a Schedule A violation, he explains, is “a lot of money for someone who doesn’t make a lot of money.” “I want to enlighten the agents about what their rights are,” he says.
