Bill Passed to Make New York City Streets Safer for Bikers and Pedestrians

Share/Save

Beginning December 27, 2016 the streets of New York City will be safer for individuals walking and biking. The new local law labeled Intro 997-A protects pedestrians who enter a crosswalk during the flashing “Pedestrian Change Interval” to have the right of way. Currently, Section 4-03 of the Rules of the City of New York states that no pedestrian should enter or cross the roadway during the time the change interval is flashing.
