Cyclists will have an advantage at New York City intersections

Law to protect New York cyclists

Cyclists will have preference just like pedestrians at thousands of intersections in New York City, thanks to a law passed by the City Council.

The legislation, proposed by Brooklyn Councilman Carlos Menchaca, and which allows cyclists to follow pedestrian signs instead of traffic lights at about 3,500 major pedestrian intervals, will take effect in November.

The intervals allow cyclists to participate in the few seconds that pedestrians have before the parallel traffic receives the green light, which makes the cyclists more visible to drivers who turn.

Voting

Of the 51 members of the Council, 37 voted in favor of the change and seven tried to block it.

The council’s bill, which Menchaca presented for the first time in 2016, is considered a measure to increase cyclists safety when traveling through the streets and avenues of New York City, and to reduce fatal accidents that put their lives at risk.
