The breaking of the rules is a family affair. Bikers often do run lights as do the drivers. Some pedestrians cross on the red or jay walk. Drivers also illegally park under no standing signs or in the middle of a lane and take away a lane from other drivers (those that drive cars to get around must be aware of that). Some drivers also park on sidewalks in less active neighborhoods.

You suggest taking away anything from the projects, see how that goes over...

Gridlock in midtown was plenty big 20 years ago too. Before Bloomers or DeBlasio.

Well, well, well. FINALLY someone besides me realizes that the claim that the pedestrian plazas - notably the eyesore in Times Square - had no impact on traffic was either a delusion or an outright lie.

Of course you must know the Post is a tabloid that tries to sensationalize things to make money and facts they publish have to be taken tongue-in-cheek.

I never drive into Manhattan. I usually just take the train, although since DeBlasio took office I try to avoid Manhattan completely.

It's very rare for drivers to run red lights within NYC. First, because there are so many cars on the road, second because there are police everywhere in the city. I see maybe 3-4 per year whereas with cyclists, I literally see them doing it every single day. They're not even on the same level.

I have no idea what you're talking about when you say that drivers park "in the middle of a lane and take away a lane from other drivers". That makes no sense whatsoever.

He means double parkers. I see this everywhere, even when people have spots in front of them. It's like a habit to these morons.
