Cyclists, Pedestrians, and Drivers Clash
In a city as dense as New York City, it is evident to see that many users of transportation exhibit bad behavior when going to their destinations. The actions of many cyclists puts them, as well as pedestrians, in vulnerable positions with the automobiles that also share the roads. Many have suggested removing bike lanes, but cyclists are alone in exhibiting bad behavior. Scofield states that "there are inconsiderate users of all modes of transportation."
Pedestrians are in the wrong because they aimlessly cross into the separated and painted bike path to see if its safe. Pedestrians are also inconsiderate of street lights, still crossing the street in large groups when they do not have the right of way causing even more traffic. Cyclists are in the wrong because they constantly run red lights, and ride down the wrong side of the street. And drivers are in the wrong because they too are careless of pedestrians. They also creep through intersections while groups of pedestrians are still crossing trying to create enough space to drive through.
