With more and more bike lanes being added all around the city, it is very important to stress that cyclists also must observe all traffic regulations that motorists and pedestrians do.
Many cyclists just plow though red lights and stop signs, as well as ignoring yield signs. This is outrageous.
A bicycle is a mode of transportation, and thus should follow the same traffic laws as motorists and pedestrians. There has been an ever increasing number of accidents as the streets of our city become more and more congested.
The Department of Transportation, NYPD, and the mayor's office must work together to better coordinate dealing with this very serious problem, which will only continue to worsen.
Safety on our city streets should always be the number one objective.
