BRONX, NY – September 2, 2020 – According to an online news report on MSN.com, the New York City Department of Transportation advertised a new initiative attempting to improve safety for cyclists in Bronx, New York. The news article states that the new campaign will not include typical pedestrian safety improvements such as barrier-protected lanes, curbs, safety bumps, painted lanes, or signage to alert drivers. Instead, city officials are asking law enforcement to resolve the pedestrian safety problems.

In the past few months, four cyclists have been killed in pedestrian accidents involving motor vehicle accidents in The Bronx. City officials are becoming increasingly concerned about the number of personal injuries and fatalities that seem to be growing exponentially. However, the New York City Department of Transportation is allegedly refusing to move forward on a large-scale network of upgraded bike lanes. According to NYPD Chief of Transportation Nilda Hofmann, the New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner has decided to implement a strict law enforcement-only strategy to reduce the growing number of bicycle accidents.

Opponents to the law enforcement-only strategy stated that the NYPD already tried to use traffic ticket sting operation back in June. Law enforcement targeted reckless drivers and speeding in areas that experienced the highest number of accidents in the past. Also, city officials lowered the speed limit on “high risk” roads such as Bruckner Boulevard. The good news is that pedestrian accidents with injuries feel by 80%. However, bicycle accidents remained the same even through the June initiative focused on speeding, failure to yield offenses, and other dangerous driver behaviors.

Gary C. January 2022 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2017. Which was caused by breathing in the toxic air from the WTC attack. I reached out to Parker Waichman for guidance in dealing with Victims Compensation Fund. My paralegal is Ms. Nicole Copertino.. There isn't enough words to describe her knowledge, professionalism and all the help she has provided during these stressful times. Without any hesitation I would recommend Parker Waichman to family, friends and business associates. Kudos to Ms. Copertino and her team at Parker Waichman.
