    Is it called a “horizontal elevator” instead of a funicular because it’s small? Cuz, isn’t that what it is, a funicular?

    Okay, so once de Blasio signs intro 238, it will be a misdemeanor to hit and injure a cyclist or pedestrian who has the right of way. Does this mean if the driver is breaking one other law, that the “rule of two” for criminal negligence will be satisfied in these cases?

  • Tyler

    (sorry, I meant to type “diagonal elevator”)

    Yes, it is pretty damn funny that we *encourage* pedestrians and cyclists to use the same 12-foot strip of asphalt when it is a multi-use path, but anywhere else, suddenly cyclists are a mortal threat.
