    NYP – “More highway lanes and better train service are obvious ways to curb commuting time, the study says. Designing cities and neighborhoods so people can walk or bike to work can also help.”

    If only those darn liberals would built more highway lanes, we’d have Utopia!

    DNA says the front-seat passenger in the Ford auto was the one who was killed, not the driver. The woman who was driving and the two kids in the back seat were taken to the hospital.

    What a terrible family tragedy. My condolences to the bereaved.

    With progressive Democrats like Bill de Blasio, who needs Republicans?

  • “Prosecutor Patricia Collins claimed Montelbano was involved in a fatal car crash at that same spot several years ago, although the suspect has no criminal record in New York.”

    Of course! “No criminality” sang the chorus.

    Elevated bike path? Somehow I feel vindicated. Now I’ll be the first to say that it’s not necessary to elevate all or even most bike paths. Nevertheless, this is a good tool for those situations where fitting a bike path at street level on which cyclists can operate reasonably optimally is not possible due to traffic volumes, lack of space, etc.
