Time’s Up tour of 7 crash sites. Friday, March 15th, 2013-Criminally Suspect Ride

The rise in car violence in NYC has definitely alarmed local residents especially since many of these crashes have not been properly investigated by the NYPD. Compacted with the fact that the cops have seemed to found time to continue their winter ticketing blitz of cyclists involved in traffic violations.

Time’s Up is taking action and leading a tour of sites where cyclists and pedestrians have been killed in recent months to draw attention to the seriousness of car violence and the need for the NYPD to change its policy.

Here is more information from Time’s Up.

TIME’S UP! LEADS BICYCLE TOUR TO 7 MEMORIALS FOR PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTS KILLED BY LAW-BREAKING DRIVERS ABSOLVED OF CRIMINALITY BY N.Y.P.D.

WHAT:
Bicycle-ride to seven locations in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn where memorials will be made for pedestrians and cyclists killed by drivers who committed traffic violations, yet within hours of each crash the NYPD declared there was “No Criminality Suspected,” and the accident investigation reports were never released to the public, including members of the victims’ families.

WHEN:
Friday, March 15, 2013

WHERE:
10am, ABC No Rio, 156 Rivington Street, Manhattan

New York, NY – On March 15, 2013, Time’s Up! will lead a bicycle tour to seven memorials that will be erected for pedestrians and cyclists that were killed by automobiles that committed at least one traffic violation.
