The NYPD started Today the “Operation Safe Cycle”, a two week bicycle safety enforcement initiative to reduce bike accidents in New York

The number of bicycle accidents in New York always reaches a peak during the summer months as more people use a bike during the warm season. Last year during the month of August one person died and 533 people suffered personal injury in 655 bicycle accidents in New York City.

In an attempt to reduce the bleeding this month of August, THE NYPD launched “Operation Safe Cycle” a two weeks initiative during which the NYPD will target cyclists who are putting their life as well as the lives of other cyclists and pedestrians at risk because they are committing hazardous violations such as disobeying traffic signals or signs, riding in the wrong direction, riding on sidewalks and others. Motorists obstructing bike lanes will also be targeted.
