Watch this amazingly revelatory video all the way through and you’ll see guilty people all over this New York City intersection whether the violations are perpetrated by pedestrian, cyclist or motorist.
But being a conscientious and considerate urban cyclist, nothing makes me hang my head in shame lower than what some of the Big Apple cyclists show me below to be entirely acceptable behavior:
By summer 2010, the expansion of bike lanes in NYC exposed a clash of long-standing bad habits â€” such as pedestrians jaywalking, cyclists running red lights, and motorists plowing through crosswalks.
By focusing on one intersection as a case study, my video aims to show our interconnection and shared role in improving the safety and usability of our streets.
The video is part of a larger campaign I created called ‘3-Way Street’. Please see blog.ronconcocacola.com for more details.
