New York Personal Injury Attorney Interprets Increase in Tickets for Cyclists as Effort to Make Streets Safer
Date:3/26/2010

An increase in tickets for cyclists is meant to cut down on road accidents

New York, New York (PRWEB) March 26, 2010 -- With the arrival of spring, more cyclists are planning to enjoy the weather. According to New York personal injury attorneys, this means an increasing number of people sharing the road with drivers and pedestrians.

This week bikers complained to The Brooklyn Paper that police are cracking down on bike riders in downtown Brooklyn, handing out an increasing number of tickets. The police were focusing on roadway around Manhattan and Brooklyn, especially one heavily traveled intersection by the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge.

The tickets were written to riders cycling outside the bike lane. According to New York law, explains New York personal injury attorney David Perecman, cyclists should ride in a lane if there is one that is available, except when the lane is blocked or when making a turn.

According to the cyclists, traffic congestion causes them to ride outside the lane, increasing bicycle accident statistics..

Laws aim to prevent road accidents and New York personal injury attorneys at the Perecman Firm agree that cyclists shouldn't be targeted to an extraordinary degree, but they should be ticketed if they are breaking the law.
