    de Blasio needs to see this.

    It seems that the Post and News are concerned that there are too many pedestrians getting killed.

    And not enough bicyclists.

    “Where is the year end total of people killed, and drivers charged?”

    Where is the promised data on the number of pedestrians and cyclists killed or sufficiently injured to be hospitalized after being struck by motor vehicles, and by bicycles? And the number of pedestrians killed and severely injured in pedestrian-only crashes (ie. sidewalk falls)? I want to see the table.

    And what do we get?? An NYPD crackdown on jaywalking. So damn predictable…
