Streetsblog.org reports that over 7,000 pedestrians and bicyclists have been injured in the first six months of 2012 in New York City. This includes 79 fatalities (67 pedestrians, 12 cyclists). While they do list that some of the incidents were hit-and-runs where the driver could not be found to be cited, the number of citations issued in proportion to the number of people injured seems WAY out of line.
What do you think? Is our car-friendly culture allowing motorists to literally get away with murder?
