Bike Lane Hater of the Week – Runner Up
CrashStat doesn’t have the latest statistics, but on Ulrich’s block, 101st Ave between 93rd St and 94th St, there were at least 10 pedestrian and cyclist injuries between 1995 and 2005. Two blocks away at the intersection of 101st Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard, there were 19 pedestrian injuries and one fatality in the same time period. But you don’t have to go that far back to find examples of just how dangerous the streets are in Ulrich’s district. On January 8, 2011, an 81-year-old woman crossing with a walk signal was hit by a tow truck when its driver turned left onto Woodhaven Boulevard.
Isn’t Eric Ulrich hilarious?
