    Waiting for Allan Rosen’s thoughts on the tragic killing in Sheepshead Bay

    I recall in 2014 after a pedestrian was killed in Central Park by a cyclist. I think we all remember that. The crackdown on cyclists in the park and in the City of New York after that terrible tragedy was equivalent– in effort and resources devoted to the cycling menace– to the City’s hunt for the Son of Sam killer back in the late 1970s. I hope the same effort is place today on rent-a-truck drivers in the five boroughs. Though I have a feeling the cyclist will be found to have been at fault.

    The Huffington Post article describes well the frustration of trying to ride in the 8th Avenue protected bike lane. It was rideable before when it was a painted bike lane (I just went around the pedestrians, in the traffic lane), but now 8th Avenue through midtown is sadly off-limits to me. I take 6th Avenue at present, but when the protected lane goes in there, I’m afraid there will be no choice for me between Madison and 10th.

    What a crazy story re: the drunk driver in Nassau. The article doesn’t say anything about the driver who actually killed the officer, but I’m sure it’s unlikely they’ll face any consequences.
