New York City’s Self-Induced Transportation Crisis (War on Cars Watch)

Just look at how the city typically protects cyclists: The Department of Transportation installs a single line of paint on the ground and calls it a bike lane. Protected bike lanes are far too rare. Since 2015, the city has installed 86 miles of what it calls “protected” bike lanes, although many of those miles do not in fact feature physical separation from traffic. Further, those projects only get expedited—meaning, installed within six months at best—when someone is killed.
