As cyclists, it is important that we know our rights as road users. In fact, we have the same right to safe passage as anyone else traveling on NYC streets. Filing police reports at the scene of a crash creates a record and ensures that the information is included in the City's annual injury counts. Accurate counts mean better policies. Being informed about the rules of the road and the responsibilities of motorists and the NYPD is the best way to be sure we are being treated as well as other road users.
A crash or ticket can be hard to handle alone. The following lawyers support NYC cyclists and are familiar with all the laws and rights that apply to us.
