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

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
