Off-Duty Cops Reported Driving on Pelham Bay Park Trails
A troubling reader tip from the Bronx:
Off-duty police officers have been using the Pelham Bay Park walking/running trails in order to avoid traffic. They barrel through the park at a high rate of speed. Twice I was almost run over while jogging, and once I was cursed at when I put my hands up. My friend asked a Parks Dept. employee about it. She told us that they were off-duty cops and that there was nothing that they could do about it. Couldn’t they install bollards or something?
Streetsblog has a message in with NYPD. The Parks Department had no comment.
Anyone else witnessed this?
