  • Didn’t make the headlines, but worthy of mention is the crowd (I’d say easily one thousand strong) that attended last nights Vision Zero Vigil in Union Square. Thank you Families for Safe Streets, Transportation Alternatives, and the other groups that participated.

  • Just read “A Thousand New Yorkers Call for Action on Vision Zero” above and I see I was hasty !! Thank you Ben Fried.

    Let’s get robust bike infrastructure on Flatbush Avenue. It’s about as good a candidate as any street in NYC for it. Its central location, its length, and all that it connects to make it something cyclists deserve as a safe route. I can’t help but wonder if advocates have just been too timid to ask for real infra on Flatbush. Well I think city cyclists should start demanding it. Let’s get a protected lane or some other serious bike infrastructure on Flatbush Avenue.

    I for one am shocked and stunned (in a very good way) to see a BP actually bike a scary route like Flatbush Ave, especially as his own hands-on research on safety for cyclists. I’m not aware of any NYC elected official ever doing anything like that. His doing this has me elated, and what he says (at least in the Gothamist piece) is similarly amazing.
