DOT: BICYCLING IN NEW YORK CITY UP 35%

The recent increase in fuel costs along with general trends toward urban living is having a large impact on the way people get around the city.  The Department of Transportation has released a study showing a rapid increase in bicycle riders over the last two years.

The crowded streets of the City of New York now include messengers and delivery persons on bicycles. This growth has, unfortunately, led to more and more pedestrians being struck by bicyclists who are employed by various businesses utilizing their services. What many people may not be aware of is that these bicyclists are subject to many of the same "rules of the road" that govern vehicular traffic. They must yield to pedestrians, not ride on sidewalks and, of course, obey traffic signals and controls.  Learn more about the law on bicycle accidents
