Bikers Set To Ruin Manhattan

Posted: September 28, 2011 by Keith Stone in bicycles, New York

I hate bikers. They think they own the streets and never obey traffic rules. Then when they have to stop to let me go, I get a dirty look. Sorry, you’re trying to go through a red light while going the wrong way. I’m walking here, motherfucker. For some reason, New York has an infatuation with bicycles. They redid like every street with bike lanes. That was enough. Now they’ve announced a bike share system that’s going to put an extra 10,000 potential accidents on the road. Luckily, it’s going to be paid for by commercial sponsors but I don’t like this one bit.

The streets are crowded enough. There’s already too many maniacs riding bikes around. They actually had to put monitors on the bridges to make sure bikers and pedestrians obeyed the rules. Now there’s going to be more maniacs, but they’re going to be less experienced maniacs. Bikes are great in some cities but not New York because of the abundance of public transportation. If you’re late, take a taxi. This isn’t Denver.
