T.A.'s Central Park Committee called on Mayor Giuliani to ban cars from the park after a February 12 collision left two joggers hospitalized. The incident occurred after a driver suffered a fatal heart attack and entered the recreation lane on the East Drive near the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Joggers, skaters and cyclists need more space, and don't need to travel inches away from traffic. To be part of the Auto-Free Central Park Campaign, call Elizabeth at T.A.
