From CBS 2:
After an insult from the city, Nancy Gruskin finally got some respect.
Last year, Gruskin’s husband, Stuart, was fatally injured by a reckless bike rider. Gruskin became concerned that the city was moving so quickly to expand bicycling and wrote the mayor about safety issues and asked for a meeting with the Department of Transportation.
Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan responded with a form letter addressed to Gruskin’s dead husband and met privately with the woman for an hour Monday.
“There was an apology and that was nice,” Gruskin told CBS 2′s Tony Aiello.

Apology to widow from Sadik-Khan

Surprising the cops dont ticket the delivery guys going the wrong way, without helmets, lights, and going way too fast. After all the police are not libtards as some so eloquently put it in their fine grammar on the article.
It's about 50 percent of the bike commuters who ruin it for everyone.
Come now police get out and do something or does it not matter what mayor it is as long as you get quick food. Surely your police union federation has more power than little bloomberg.
The cops should give themselves tickets when they go the wrong way up my one way street on their way to Rosa's pizza!!!
Surprising the cops dont ticket the delivery guys going the wrong way, without helmets, lights, and going way too fast.
For the same reason they do not give out littering or noise summons in heavily immigrant districts.
We have to encourage the tweeded.
The Machine needs their votes and support, as well as something to drive out the complaining middle class.
So they get a pass.
Why does a delivery guy have to wear the helmet and not a non-business adult bike rider?
You know what really pisses me off? Jaywalkers. Pedestrians need to follow the rules and ONLY cross at intersections and ONLY when their light is green. When are we gonna crack down on these reckless walkers?
Not to mention the litterers. Still burning cigarette butts, flammable straw and gum wrappers, empty cups and bags from fast food joints.
Drunk drivers. TLC drivers who speed and don't signal turns and lane changes and drive on the shoulder to get ahead of traffic.
People who spit or drop gum on sidewalks. People who use profanity in front of women and children. Women and children who use profanity in front of all of us. Children who have sex with other children - unprotected sex. Pigeons that poop everywhere without fear of recourse.
This city is a lawless, chaotic pigsty and all you people can complain about is a few bicycle riders?
