Safer Streets Are Out of Control! A CBS2 Special Investigation

Before you get to the outrageous part of this post, first an announcement from reader Steve Vaccaro:

If you get your fill of Summer Streets tomorrow by noon or earlier, please come by the Target Community Garden on East 117th Street between First and Pleasant Avenues, for a brunch hosted by Transportation Alternatives East Side Committee to help organize for the completion of the East Side Bikeway all the way to 125th Street, by the end of next year. We'll be there from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm with coffee and food.

Now, if you need some extra motivation to help out, watch this promo for a five-day special report airing on CBS2 next week:

I hesitate to reward CBS with my viewership for what promises to be a total hatchet job. But I can't wait to see the results of their "investigation" into a city policy that's making New York City streets safer for everyone, causing steep drops in injuries to pedestrians, cyclists and motorists wherever it's applied.
