Crashes in Bike Lanes NYC
A cyclist in NYC got a ticket for riding outside of a bike lane, and then decided to make a video about what it was like to try and JUST stay in the bike lane. All this without a helmet. You can see the BoingBoing post here, but it just links to Consumerist, and anyway that gets to the guy’s actual YouTube page.
Some posts on my site have led to debates for and against cyclists and drivers. Truth is nobody’s perfect on both sides of the equation, but I am in favor of cyclists having rights just like drivers, and lots of that these days means simple awareness. That being said, plenty of cyclists take these rights and go outside their bounds, running lights and things that they wouldn’t dare do in a car. Anyway, it’s a funny video. Enjoy!
