The city of New York, in a period of confinement, must face risky behavior on the part of motorists and bikers on the deserted roads of the Big Apple. And radars have their work cut out for them …
Feeling of impunity
In New York, speed cameras that track speeding users recorded an increase in flashes in March with 83,478 infractions observed by said speed cameras, during a period of 8 working days, or only 8%. less than last January on comparable working days, a normal month where hundreds of thousands of cars circulated every day on New York roads which is obviously not the case in recent weeks, reports the blog New Yorkers nyc.streetsblog.org.
yesterday i was commuting by bike and i * witnessed * someone flip their car on the wburg bridge. i was v grateful to be on an elevated bike lane away from vehicles. it was a disturbing reminder of the dangers that cars pose to peds, cyclists and the drivers themselves. #bikenyc pic.twitter.com/tSWJ1U7FDv
