Where to Go for Traffic Justice Rally at Noon Today

11:19 AM EDT on October 26, 2011

Last week Matthew Lefevre was killed by a hit-and-run truck driver while biking in East Williamsburg. According to the wisps of information NYPD has released about the case, it seems that police exonerated the driver based only on his own explanation -- that he never saw Lefevre or noticed he'd run him down.

At noon today, members of Lefevre's family will join Transportation Alternatives and Neighbors Allied for Good Growth to call for Ray Kelly's police department to uphold traffic laws. The event is open to the public and anyone who wants to tell NYPD that street safety matters can attend. The blue dot marks the approximate spot, between the Municipal Building and NYPD headquarters, where the rally will take place.
