Daredevil Bicyclists Being Watched in New York to Prevent AccidentsNY Accident Lawyer
Posted on April 15, 2018
In 2017, bicyclists swarmed Hylan Boulevard and started popping wheelies in traffic. The same could happen this year, putting many cyclists and vehicle drivers at risk in the next few months as the weather starts to warm. These actions are illegal and could lead to serious accidents that could lead to severe injuries or death.
In Staten Island, cops are already on the lookout for these daredevil bicyclists who risk lives by not watching out for safety. Cops are not hesitating to confiscate wheels. The NYPD 122nd Precinct tweeted that interfering with traffic is illegal and dangerous. Last year around the same time, there was a police crackdown and two males were arrested, as well as five bicycles taken from riders.
These incidents can lead to reckless endangerment charges as well. Let us help if you have been injured in one of these serious accidents due to the reckless actions of a rider who was choosing to do daredevil stunts on their bike. We want to help at Silbowitz Garafola Silbowitz Schatz & Frederick.
