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.

WHEN:
Friday, March 15, 2013

WHERE:
