Brooklyn Just days after a CBS exclusive report on cyclist running amock in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY, cyclists continues to run over children.
“This is unheard of, ”said Williamsburg resident Isaac Abraham to CBS2’s Marc Liverman. “You knock off a child, the child was lucky to get up, knowing where to go, ring the bell and lucky somebody was there to open the door for her.”
Abraham said he’s heard of three collisions where bicyclists slammed into pedestrians, some pushing strollers.
New York City police have issued more than 500 red light summonses to bicyclists in 2018 alone.
But Abraham says it’s just not enough. He wants to see more bicycle rule enforcement before someone else is hit and or killed.
“If you’re going to bike on a steady way, some type of registration responsibility that if, God forbid, you injure somebody that you cannot just walk away from it,” he said.
isaac Abraham is offering a 250.00 reward for any information leading to an arrest of the cyclist who took off. NYPD says if they catch the cyclist he will be charged with a hit and run.
