New York Bicycle Accident Lawyer Adnan Munawar Issues a Statement on Alleged CitiBike Safety Hazard

This is not the first time a rider has been injured after biking into one of the wheel stops; a male rider recently crashed into one Midtown and was rendered unconscious. The city is already facing at least two lawsuits relating to accidents at Citi Bike stations.

Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP, spoke today about Ms. Scott-Mitchell’s accident and the on-going process of improving biker safety in New York City. “The city has taken great strides to increase the accessibility of biking as a form of transportation, most notably through creating new bike lanes and changing the flow of vehicular traffic, and the Citi Bike program was created to encourage people to try riding a bicycle as a means of gett
