Been in a motorcycle accident? Don't get taken for a ride!

Though here on Staten Island, you may like to think you live in the "forgotten borough," there are times when the volume of traffic may make you feel quite the opposite. Between commuters passing through and residents moving between New Jersey and Manhattan, this can be quite a busy place.

Blocked bike lanes increasingly dangerous for cyclists

It is not uncommon for parked cars or idling taxis to force cyclists to swerve into traffic causing bike lanes to become increasingly dangerous for New York cyclists. Blocked bike lanes are more than an inconvenience; they can produce personal injuries and even fatalities. In NYC there have been 17 cyclist fatalities as of August 2016, already surpassing last year's total. As fatalities climb, it is important for cyclists to know that the law is behind them.

The need for drivers to watch out for motorcycles

After striking a motorcyclist, drivers often provide the excuse to investigating officers that they did not see the motorcycle rider. Yet the failure to look out for motorcycles too often results in severe injuries or even death to the rider.
