CYCLIST KILLED ON 21ST ST. NEAR MoMA PS1

A cyclist was killed on 21st Street by MoMA PS1 yesterday afternoon when he was struck by a driver opening the door of his parked car according to Politico.  Not much to add other than be very, very careful as most of the city is not a very bike-friendly location – it was the sixth bicyclist killed this year.

    Dooring a cyclist or another driver is a violation of New York State Vehicle Traffic Law §1214. Additionally, violating the right of way of a cyclist or pedestrian in a manner that results in injury or death is a misdemeanor punishable by fine and/or jail time according to city code.

    Much of the city isn’t as safe for people who bike and walk as it should be, but the lesson learned from this crash and death is that drivers should be careful when opening their doors, since only the driver who doored the cyclist, and not the victim, broke city law
