Alexander Smotritsky, 39, was three blocks from his Bath Beach home when he struck Xiali Yue, 61, Monday morning at 21st Ave. and Cropsey Ave., cops said. She is in critical condition
Attorney Steve Vaccaro is like a Transportation Alternatives "legal button man." Sues the city at the drop of a hat. Tries to intimidate the NYPD. The law does not mention cyclists being penalized if a rogue rider hits a pedestrian who is within a cross walk and has the right of way. This is a Vision Zero blind spot. We believe this is an intentional neglect of equal motor vehicle culpability. A prejudicial law that is a result of Transportation Alternatives radical mission to drive the auto from the city and recapture the streets and sidewalks for the bicycle.
*****Having Vaccaro write the law is akin to having lobbyists(TA employs and is a registered lobby group) write a Federal law. It is akin to having Halliburton write the laws pertaining to Fracking.******
