New York personal injury lawyers at The Perecman Firm are concerned about speeding cyclists in Central Park. As reported by the New York Daily News, bicyclists are posing an ongoing challenge to pedestrians and each other by speeding and running red lights.
In 35 minutes, the Daily News clocked 16 bicyclists breaking the 25-mph speed limit in the Park, including bicyclists racing “at speeds of up to 30 mph,” according to the New York newspaper.
“The rules of the road apply to everyone,” said New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s personal injury law firms. “People can be seriously injured or killed when cyclists ignore stop signs, stop lights and flout other traffic laws.”
According to the New York Daily News, a Hunter College study conducted recently found that at least 500 New Yorkers are treated in hospitals annually after getting hit by bicyclists. Since January of this year, 292 biking accidents occurred in the city with 65 of those accidents in Central Park, according to NYPD statistics reported by the NYDN.
“For pedestrians and cyclists to safely share the road, everyone must obey the rules,” said Perecman, a personal injury lawyer in New York for over 30 years.
