NYC reckless driver law should have taken driver accused of killing Brooklyn baby off the street

The driver accused of killing a 3-month-old baby girl in Brooklyn Saturday should have had his car impounded months ago — but Mayor de Blasio’s administration has failed to implement legislation cracking down on the city’s most reckless drivers.

Tyrik Mott, 28, who lives in Crown Heights, drove a 2017 Honda Civic with Pennsylvania plates the wrong way down Gates Ave. about 6:20 p.m. when he slammed into another car at Vanderbilt Ave., cops say. Both vehicles careened onto the sidewalk where little Apolline Mong-Guillemin was being pushed by her mother in a stroller. The baby died. Her mother was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Mott allegedly attempted to make a getaway by carjacking another driver and was arrested.
