Turn Out Tonight to Talk Street Safety With Brooklyn CB 2

A quick note about tonight’s meeting on motorist-cyclist relations put on by Brooklyn Community Board 2. "Sharing the Road, Sharing the Responsibility" — a panel discussion with NYCDOT, NYPD, Transportation Alternatives, and AAA — is an important one for cyclists to attend.

This community district includes the approaches to the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. If you ride those bridges, you’ll want to turn out for what promises to be a substantive discussion of street safety. We hear that the panel will field written questions from audience members. Here’s where to go to speak up:

6:00 pm
St. Francis College – Founders Hall
180 Remsen St. (bet. Court & Clinton Sts.)
(2/3/4/5/M/R to Borough Hall)
