31 Bicycle Accidents that injured cyclists have been reported since 1995 on Bond Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, NY. Everyday close to 400 bicyclists use this road as a downton-bound connection to Brooklyn’s offices and the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. To protect bicycle users from future accidents, the New York City Department of Transportation proposed the creation of a five foot wide bikers-only lane except between Third and Douglass streets and between Wyckoff and Schermerhorn streets, where it morphs into a shared lane for cars and bike riders. The proposal was presented by the NYC DOT to the Community Board’s transportation committee last week and was received positively. The full community board’s vote is scheduled for March 12th.
