Ah, car drivers! Still nurturing that sense of entitlement form the horse-and-carriage days!
For years, NYC has been sacrificing the needs of the non-driving majority of New Yorkers--over 66%--for drivers. In fact, sacrificing them literally as well, with hundreds of pedestrians and cyclists killed per year. And even after all the recent changes, road-hogging motorists are still allocated the majority of public space in the city.
If NYC made a truly equitable distribution of road space, there would be far less handed over to cars than there is now. As the city's own data prove, pandering to drivers kills commerce as well as residents; streets with bike lanes and reduced motor traffic enjoy far higher retail sales and sense of community--and far fewer dead bodies--than roadways devoted to rushing cars.
Get real, folks....Nov 20, 2013
