Eyes on the Street: Access Denied
Here’s another case of dangerously uncivil servitude, via Gothamist’s John Del Signore, who came upon an Access-A-Ride driver parked in the elevated Sands Street bike lane. It’s no surprise that Del Signore’s complaint to the driver was answered with a shrug (or, more accurately, a "What’s the big deal? Just go around."). But when he sent the photo to NYC Transit for comment, here was the response:
"Access-A-Ride drivers are instructed to observe all restrictions on
parking and standing. However, due to traffic, drivers are often
challenged to find safe locations to either pick up or drop off
How many holes in that statement do you count?
