T.A. Statement on Pedestrian Hit by Cyclist in Central Park

Statement of Paul Steely White, Executive Director of Transportation Alternatives:

“Because we’re serious about reaching Vision Zero, we need to speak out in response to every preventable tragedy and condemn all acts of reckless behavior in traffic. As the most vulnerable users of our streets, pedestrians must be safe from reckless cycling, just as they need to be protected from reckless driving. This is particularly true in our parks. As we await the conclusion of the investigation, our thoughts are with Jill Tarlov and her family during this difficult time.”
