LIC GETS NICE BIKE LANES ON PULASKI BRIDGE WHILE JAMAICA RESIDENTIAL STREETS HAVE DANGEROUS ILLEGAL TRUCK DRIVING

Trucks 5.4.16 004Yes, a tale of two cities.

I doubt that LIC has better local elected officials than Jamaica (well, since the fucking bar is so low, yes LIC does have better local elected officials than the lazy, useless and corrupt hood rats that we have), BUT, residents in LIC actually care and voice their issues LOUD and CLEAR and DEMAND, while most of Jamaica residents are like the Jamaica local elected officals and other so-called leaders, they just accept, they don’t speak out or they get bamboozled by this motley ebony crew of do nothings like Comrie, Meeks, Cooks, Miller, Wills and other assorted assholes.

According to the article, Cyclists and pedestrians will no longer have to fight for space on a bridge linking two popular Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods. BUT Jamaica residents will still have to dodge large dangerous trucks on residential streets. One is a luxury, the other is actually law, NO TRUCKS ON RESIDENTIAL STREETS., yet is rarely enforced. Yes, we certainly  must provide luxury to LIC and Brooklyn, but necessities like SAFETY in communities like Jamaica, well, a big FUCK YOU to color of communities brought to you by leaders of color.

So while the Pulaski Bridge gets the all so important bike lane, our residential streets in Jamaica are being used as “Death Race 2000” by large dangerous and noisy huge trucks, while our leaders come up with the next great umpteenth photo op for some useless event like street naming, you know the “important stuff” that does no require heavy lifting.

Cyclists and pedestrians will no longer have to fight for space on a bridge linking two popular Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods.

The city opened a long-awaited two-way bike lane on the Pulaski Bridge Friday, giving cyclists a pedestrian-free lane to zip between Long Island City, Queens, and Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

For years, as more New Yorkers took to two wheels, cyclists and pedestrians were sharing the same cramped space on the side of the 62-year-old bridge. The old pathway will now be just for pedestrians.

While the city was planning the bike lane, officials found that the number of cyclists using the Pulaski Bridge’s shared path on weekday mornings and afternoons doubled to about 1,000 daily between 2009 and 2013.

The city Department of Transportation took out a Brooklyn-bound traffic lane to make room for the bike lane.
