More on the Bedford Bike Lane

"There are people who are trying to play that the nudity is the issue, but it's not," South Williamsburg resident Leo Moskowitz told the Gothamist blog today. "The main concern is the safety of our kids. There are lot of institutions and families on that Bedford Avenue stretch, and we are always really concerned about the kids being picked up and dropped off. There are sometimes small accidents where the cyclists are violating the law because they don't stop for flashing school buses."

And those small accidents are much less desirable than cyclist deaths like this one. And this one, this one, and this one.

Gothamist also reported that 50 nude and scantily clad bicyclists will ride through the 14 blocks of Bedford Avenue that no longer has a bike lane in protest of its removal.
