Walking through Queens safer

Looks like Queens bike fatalities have stayed about the same...
while pedestrian deaths have plummeted.

I had a bicyclist crash into me on Park Ave So in Manhattan in 2005. I required stitches in my mouth. The bicyclist took off after walking me two blocks to where I work. I realized he did this only to get away from any witnesses.

The precinct refused to take a report, no matter how hard I insisted.

How often does this happen? I believe those stats may not be accurate.

I got hit by a bicycle once while walking on the sidewalk, too. The NYPD is supposed to treat the collision the same way as if it were a car and file the accident report.
