BAD CYCLING BEHAVIOR

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column.


To the Editor:
Regarding Bunny Abraham’s letter to the editor (“Peds Need Better Advocate”), I am troubled by Ms. Abraham’s conclusion that the specific illegal cyclist behavior she witnessed means that Transportation Alternatives must somehow condone this behavior and/or is doing nothing to try and discourage it. Ms. Abraham’s statement is incorrect: as an organization, we unequivocally believe that cyclists must follow the rules of the road, which means, among other things, not riding on the sidewalk and not going through red lights. We make this clear in all of our literature and back it up with education and outreach, including a recent joint safe-cycling partnership with the Coalition for a Livable West Side.
