In the next 24 hours, a dozen New Yorkers will be put in the hospital, simply because they got on their bicycle or went for a walk. Traumatic brain injury, loss of limb, in-erasable trauma; this is the reality of walking and bicycling in New York City.
These crashes kill and injure tens of thousands of New Yorkers every year. And 99.5 percent of the time, the New York City Police Department fails to investigate. It’s the inexcusable reason why most drivers who kill never even get a summons.
