Today’s installment takes us back to the New York State Thruway, where a FOIL request initially denied — overturned on [an epic, if I may say so myself] appeal — has resulted in our possessing an unusually large volume of New York State Thruway Authority accident footage.
Our big win = your big win. Let’s partake.
“FOIL” stands for “Freedom of Information Law” — New York State’s access to public records statute. For more information on getting access to public records in New York State, visit https://tiny.cc/foil2.
