    Well, the ped bedlam link did not work.

    But I do think the traffic safety data, which some believe will tar bicycles and some believe will exonerate them, will be without a full perspective if it does not include public right of way injuries due to trips and falls.

    Just compare these two sentences.

    “Last year 50 pedestrians went to the hospital as a result of collisions with bicycles.”

    “Last year 50 pedestrians went to the hospital due to collisions with bicycles, and 5,000 went to the hospital as a result of bumping into other pedestrians or falling down on their own.”

    The Yankees, who contributed exactly $0 to help build the new Metro-North station that is feeding fans to their games in a big way, tell Newsday they’re ready to help bail out the parking garages, if only the garage operator would ask for help.

  • How about we close the BQE except for shuttle buses to a parking lot on Staten Island?

  • re: Ped Bedlam! New Yorkers’ Peppy Step Exacerbates Epidemic of Ped-Ped Crashes (Transpo Nation)

    Funny & on-topic; silliness of self-propulsion laws.

    The BQE tunnel idea was DOA. If the state can barely afford to tunnel a Second Avenue subway, they will not splurge to bury a road. Now, if we could convince them to make the road at grade ala West Side Highway, that would be the best of all worlds. Even better than tunneling.

    Regarding the bus garage, the Maspeth NIMBYs are making a weak argument. They say the city should look for a site in Brooklyn because they shouldn’t be burden by promises made in other parts of the city. Well, they are a part of same city, and the same transit system, so they share equal responsibility in making it function.
