    I just thanked Lander, Vallone, and Vacca for The Crash Investigation Reform Act.  I encourage you to do the same, and to ask your city council member to support the legislation.

    Citi Bike Share

    August 23rd Launch Date.  Just got my invite from TA to the celebration!!!!

  • somebody

    The T.A. event happening on August 23rd does not mean that Citi Bike is launching August 23rd.

  • Joe Ferris

    August 23 invite is for an event celebrating Citi Bike – the launch of bike share. 

  • Joe Ferris

    Continued from the last comment – not the launch of bike share. Just an event celebrating bike share. Sorry for the confusion

    Someone please help me with the math: 
    1) NYPD actually violates the law when they choose to not investigate car crashes that result in serious injury.
    2) Car crashes that seriously injure continue to occur.  They are probably increasing. 
    3) By all accounts, driving behavior is not improving on its own.

    How is it possible that 1 + 2 + 3  does not equal a class action lawsuit against the NYPD?  Any person who would like to walk or bike somewhere in NYC, but is too afraid of the way cars drive on the roads and sidewalks, is suffering real harm that can easily be translated to monetary damages.  

    Where are the lawyers I say!
