Caption Contest: Chan Declares Bike-Obsessed Cop a Vision Zero Hero

Thanking @NYPD20Pct Officer Vincek for his dedication & commitment to community concerns & #VisionZero. #UWS pic.twitter.com/JHM79Fbsv9

— Chief Thomas M. Chan (@NYPDTransport) July 8, 2015

Joshua Vincek is the 20th Precinct officer known for ticketing over 1,200 cyclists during a 38-month period when the entire precinct summonsed just 331 drivers for speeding. That’s not a typo.

Never mind that reckless drivers cause the vast majority of road carnage in NYC. Today NYPD Chief of Transportation Thomas Chan hailed Vincek as a Vision Zero hero.
