It’s about time someone took a stand against the lack of available road space for motorists and filed a lawsuit to have bike lanes in Brooklyn removed. Yeesh!
According to The Brooklyn Paper, our Brooklyn bike brothers are being targeted by a group of NYC fat cat lane-haters who are misrepresenting the neighborhood’s sentiment towards the controversial Prospect Park West bike lane. According to a neighborhood survey, “only 22 percent of residents want Prospect Park West to be restored to its original, bike-lane-free state.”
Well I don’t know about you, but I sure hope that those Brooklyn drivers get more of the road back soon… Could you imagine if they tried to remove a bike lane in San Francisco [insert protest link here]?!
