Oh, those reckless bikers. Speeding bikers in New York City have been getting pulled over. Cops state that they should stick to the city’s speeding limit (25mph) and be aware of their surroundings.
Joggers and pedestrians are relieved. The crack down is also a result of Richard Bernstein’s 3-week hospital stay at Mount Sinai Hospital. Bernstein, a blind man and Central Park inhabitant who was struck by a speeding cyclist now suffers from a pulverized hip. “It’s still the Wild West out there.”
Park users are exhausted from having to dodge speeding riders that are zooming down the sidewalk at nearly 30 mph.
