"It's devastating to hear someone with such a big megaphone complaining about protected bike lanes. If there had been a protected bike lane on Central Park West, my daughter would still be alive today. I haven’t been to New York, but I understand that most residents don’t drive, and that many use bikes for daily transportation. These bike riders need to be protected, just as my daughter needed to be protected.”
