    I was looking at the continuing news reports...there is a lot of innuendos on the part of the press. When you ride CP on Thursday the bike lane is the worst lane you can ride. That section is...

    The "Disneyland" effect - LOL. :lol:

    The visitors from smaller cities in the US tend to follow NYC posted directions. They also tend to look well-scrubbed and a little awe-struck. Other folks,...

    Very true. The interesting bit is that there is very little accountability on the peds., or tourists getting a free pass when ignoring posted signs. Or using common sense. It is never any kind of a...

    As Fissile and Vol have mentioned - parts of NYC must be ridden with caution. And I agree that the Brooklyn Bridge roadway is a MOST dangerous place to ride a bike. I rarely ride the area until cold...

    I'm very sorry for the mom and her family.

    Central Park (and especially that section downhill) is rife with tourists and all sorts of collision dangers. People walking in the bike lane, pedicabs...

    I have a car door equivalent in NYC. As a pedestrian in Manhattan you have to be very careful of the person walking in front, or to the side of you. Sometimes they stop, or turn suddenly. Sometimes...

    Glad you were able to get some compensation. Bummer you weren't able to be made whole. The law is sometimes really weird.

    In my case (small claims) the judge said damages were way over their...

    As mentioned earlier - NYC buses are sloooow. At least in Manhattan proper and I have never had one pose a problem. That said - I am always wary of large buses and trucks. When I was a kid growing up...

    I hope you were able to collect. And your advice about calling the police is a very good idea.

    I would argue that most hard-boiled denizens of Manhattan act in their own self interst. The exceptions are visitors, or the uninitiated who still have a sense of equality. It's less of free for all...

    A typical "stupid" incident in NYC. Jaywalkers, dopey cab and passenger, a cyclist going way, way too fast for the area. If i ride Union Square area - I am typically doing 12 -14 mph, or lower.

    There are varying attitudes (in the US) with regards to the management of dogs. In my local area there is no lease law and as such it's not unusual to see bands of dogs roaming the town doing...

    Not sure what message the writer is trying to convey as he meanders. At the base level - the kid in Trenton stole property and in the United States - that's not allowed. Press charges. I also...

    I would go see a NYC accident lawyer and there are attorneys who specialize in bike accidents. Make sure to memorialize everything that occurred on paper, get the med reports asap and do not post...

    This is no windfall for the cyclist. She will have physical problems for the rest of her life. < 2 million (including a substantial lawyer %) does not equal being pain free, able to walk normally...

    Given he didn't hurt anyone, or receive tickets….I guess anger management was an appropriate choice. Finding his inner self might also help him with his morbid obesity. The guy must be pushing 300 ...

    I'm stuck on the car - can't find it anymore. Looked like a beater Hyunda and certainly not a good-looking Honda coupe - 6th gen. As per Massachusetts - some wicked crazies out there.

    I hope they...

    Dorchester has a very high % of crime. Certainly not my favorite part of the Boston area. Not surprised some violent wanker decides to punch this fellow in the mouth. I do hope this incident...

    Sadly, I don't think Maddox is going to be spending much time behind jail. If he gets a lawyer who advises him to do the right thing he'll probably promise to do some community service/psych work...
