  • TKO

    The city is right to go after cyclist who break the law. I saw cyclist his by a car the other day.It was the cyclist fault not the automobiles. The cyclist came out off the sidewalk straight into traffic the wrong direction of traffic right in front of a vehicle. Luckily he was unharmed. It was clearly his fault not the driver. He had almost hit me as a pedestrian moments before riding into the street. Maybe if he had followed the law none of this would have happened.

    Sadly you can be at almost any intersection as I do on my bicycle waiting for the light to change and see cyclist blow through them with total disregard for the safety of pedestrians and themselves. Why the need? Safety first.

    Profile of JSK in Crain’s.

    “While the creation of the Times Square plazas outraged many area merchants, today the bulk of them favor making the plazas permanent.”

    Repeating what happened in Milan. Opponents of these changes clearly have a limited window to reverse them before people can see for themselves that the BS thrown around is just that.

  • Kwyjibo

    Stephen Goldsmith just told Brian Lehrer that, while he is skeptical of licensing, the city should look to ticketing cyclists as a revenue source.

  • Remarkable how the Post had to stretch and cite the pre-regulation problems of the pedicab industry in order to fill out their rant against the problems supposedly caused by pedicabs now. Pathetic.
