The Added Stiffness Of The New Wednesday Allows You To Descend With Confidence

As you may recall, here in New York City the transit workers' union has been lobbying tirelessly to exempt their members from the Right Of Way Law, which makes it a misdemeanor for a driver to strike a pedestrian or cyclist with the right of way:


To that end, they've launched a PR campaign employing such cunning tactics as Twitter-shaming pedestrians crossing with the light:

And there's a bill before the City Council which would once again make right of way violations okey-dokey as long as you're driving a bus:

This local law would exempt MTA bus drivers from Local Law 29-2014, which creates penalties for drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians or bicyclists who have the right of way.

Well, up in Albany (that's the capital of New York State, it has a building shaped like an egg and everything) I'm pleased to announce that our state senators have passed a bill upholding the Right of Way Law and ensuring that bus drivers are treated just like any other driver who hits a pedestrian or cyclist with the right of way.

Just Kidding!!!


No, what they actually did was pass a bill that says police can't detain bus drivers, taxi drivers, and livery drivers at the scene:


“You can’t criminalize an accident. An accident is an accident. And no one should be fearful of being arrested on their job for an accident,” said Sen. Jesse Hamilton of Brooklyn, who said his brother-in-law is a bus operator. “If you’re on the job and you’re not drinking, you’re not impaired by any other influence, you shouldn’t be arrested.”

I've long suspected that most of our laws exist to protect the incompetent and stupid, and this confirms that suspicion.

Also, speaking of incompetent and stupid, Senator Diane Savino chimed in:

“People levy all kinds of insults at our bus operators,” said Sen. Diane Savino of Staten Island. “But this is one insult too many, to expect them to be held to a higher standard than the general public.”

Holy crap, this is idiotic on so many levels.  Firstly this isn't even about holding bus and taxi drivers to a higher standard, it's about holding them to the same standard.  Secondly, why the hell should't they be held to a higher standard?  Have you ever seen a fucking bus?  It's huge!  There's a reason you need a special license to drive one.

Of course you may recall Senator Savino as the author of this memorable quote:


Diane J. Savino i am intrigued, john, right now, i just scream at them out the window of my car. quite a site when i yell, "Hey, find a fucking bike lane and get in it"

We are so fucked.

Anyway, the bill goes to the New York State Assembly next, so tell your assembly member you're against it.



(I realize that the idea opposing things just for the sake of opposing them pretty much undermines the point I'm trying to make, but whatever.)

If nothing else, this whole situation is indicative of a fundamental problem, and this problem is called "New York State:"


("Canada's Skin Tag")

See, New York City comprises nearly half the population of New York State, yet much of our fate is determined by lawmakers in Albany, which is frightening when you consider that New York State north of the Bear Mountain Bridge is a cultural and economic wasteland that makes even Florida seem sophisticated.  This is an entire economy driven by the whims of drunken SUNY students, which is why New York State produces mainly Domino's pizza and Buffalo wings, and why when you factor out the New York City Metropolitan Area your employment prospects in New York State are as follows:

--Pizza and wing delivery specialist (must have own rusted-out '91 Honda Civic);
--Weed dealer (though you'll need a legitimate job such as pizza and wing delivery specialist for cover);
--Sex worker specializing in state legislators.

Trust me, I know what I'm talking about.  I went to a SUNY school.  You could actually take a class called "Rimming Sheldon Silver."

Of course, you could always become an organic farmer, but technically that's the same as working in New York City since your livelihood will depend on selling radishes to rich people in Union Square.

Anyway, I'd say Canada can have New York State north of the city (we get to keep our watershed), but there's no way they'd go for it.

In other news, Frank Schleck won't be riding the Tour de France:


For the first time in more than a decade, a rider with the last name Schleck won’t be racing the Tour de France.

The Schleck brothers were top Tour protagonists for the better part of 10 years, reaching the culmination of sharing the podium in 2011, the first brothers to reach the Paris podium in Tour history.

Which is newsworthy only in that nobody had any idea that he was still riding.

By the way, if you're wondering which Schleck is which, Frank is the one who got busted for doping, and Andy is the one with the hurty tummy:


Watching Frank and Andy Schleck arm wrestling is like watching two cats try to solve the New York Times crossword puzzle.

Lastly, it's no secret that Freds are terrible about leaving their stupid energy gel packets all over the place, and reader informs me that the head of GU Energy Labs has penned an impassioned screed against littering:


Out of some frustration, I started last summer to pick up wrappers I saw while riding. The picture shows my collection from rides around Portland, Berkeley, and other favorite spots. Recently I started logging the locations in Strava.

It was a ride on Emigration Canyon Road above Salt Lake City during Outdoor Retailer that most got under my skin. I picked up seven gel packets on a road remarkably un-littered with beer cans and cigarettes. But it was littered with energy food wrappers. Six were GU's.

Of course I agree with him, yet there's a part of me that feels like he should be out there cleaning up after his customers.  After all, Freds are like feral cats--you shouldn't feed them or else you're going to have a real problem on your hands.  Therefore, inasmuch as he is a maker of Fred fuel, isn't this whole situation at least partially his fault?

Just gel for thought.

32. The problems of the leftist are indicative of the problems of our society as a whole. Low self-esteem, depressive tendencies and defeatism are not restricted to the left. Though they are especially noticeable in the left, they are widespread in our society. And today’s society tries to socialize us to a greater extent than any previous society. We are even told by experts how to eat, how to exercise, how to make love, how to raise our kids and so forth.

I'v always been kind of surprised that gels aren't easier to deal with after eating them. You can never get 100% out of the packet and then the remaining 3% makes 100% of the other things in your jersey pocket really sticky.

If he'd make a better delivery system, there'd be less littering.

So my commute to NYC under this new bill would go from figuratively killing me, to literally killing me?

I feel so bad for the cyclists of NYC. In Denver I don't ride my bike on bike to work day because it is amateur day. Reading today's post makes me realize just how lucky I am. I can ride 18 miles to work with little fear of being hit by a car, and 9 of my 18 miles is on a paved pedestrian path heavy utilized by cyclists.

"a virtual rain of water bottles and gel pack wrappers from the peleton, strewn upon the country-side. "

In the old days kids would pick up the water bottles, to use them selves or to sell. And the food musettes contained things like bananas, figs and rice cakes. The only wrapper through away were bio-degradable.

Now-a-days there are certain marked sections of the course where the riders can throw things away. There are fine for throw bottles/trash out side these areas. Someone (not sure who) picks up after the race.

If bus drivers are held to account for criminal negligence at the wheel, where would it stop? Next you'll be wanting cops to be held reasonable for shooting people. Then bankers for crashing economies. Eventually, even politicians wouldn't be able to get away with starting wars on fabricated evidence, or covering up the illegal acts of their supporters. And then where would we be? People might start to care about truth, and value the lives of others. What kind of hellish society would it be, if extrovert show-offs couldn't open their mouths and let any crap come out, safe in the knowledge that nobody gives a damn.

RHE said...

Was riding in NYC last week - bus drivers SHOULD be held to a higher standard. How about dash cams since technology seems to be the replacement for training and upholding the law. A few buses yielded to cyclists where appropriate; but mostly buses came as close as they could. How is this different from cabbies being able to run over cyclists with impunity? Neither should be a protected class.

George Fairbairn said...

I'm a cyclist and a bus enthusiast (we have such weird things here in the UK). If you were to suggest immunity from prosecution for failing to give way to a pedestrian on a crossing here in Britain or anywhere in Europe you'd be laughed at. I can scarce believe that this is even an issue. I don't think any bus drivers' union member here would think such a policy would be in any way a good idea either.

@George Fairbaim 2:32,

We are the country with "open carry" laws. And that does not mean you can openly carry an alcoholic beverage (highly illegal). Rather, it means you can openly carry a loaded semi-automatic firearm into restaurants, bars, movie theaters, hospitals, churches, public parks, public streets, etc. Etc.

And look how well that's going for us.

Point being, the law to allow bus operators and taxi drivers to mow down pedestrians with impunity makes a certain amount of sense. You just have to look at it from the right angle. (The American Way).

Roille Figners said...

Mr Snob

As a life long resident of CNY I take exception to your downstate, big city smugness. I graduated from your alma mater and when I was there was always appalled by the attitudes of those students who hailed from the NYC/Long Island regions. They were a bunch of self important arrogant bastards. That was back in the 70's and I see that the attitude has not changed.

Come spend some time Upstate in the presence of nice people. Our bus drivers don't need a law telling them not to run over pedestrians/bikers.

I can get on my bike, ride for 10 minutes and be out in the country, enjoying the road and yeah, maybe the odor of cow shit. That is a lot better than your bullshit.

BikeSnobNYC said...

bikeshepherd,

I was merely venting. It is my job as a sarcastic blogger to exude big city smugness. I completely agree that NYC/LI college students are some of the biggest douchebags on the planet earth--though fortunately for you most of them return downstate after six or seven years once they've attained their undergraduate degree.

Mr Fairbaim - the UK is generally a little more civilized than we are out here in the wild wild west. My God, the bus drivers over there actually give change! Imagine that. And since we are in a tighter death grip of the automotove'industrial complex than you are, the motorist's right to maim and kill with abandon must not be questioned. Not. Ever.

I'm no nanny state advocate but in the middle of the cold cruel heartless city to have throngs of defenseless (except for the concealed carry folks, oh wait, there are no guns in NYC, got it) pedestrians compete with multi ton objects for cross walk real estate is really outta control.

Living in Arkansas, where we thought of places like New York as modern and far ahead of the rest of us, I thought all that BikeSnob wrote was fictional humor. Then I moved to Syracuse where I was immediately taken back to what cycling was like 20 years ago in Arkansas, one of the places that comes to mind when you hear the word "backwards". (If you're two decades behind "backwards", does that make you 2 decades advanced?) Geez, even in the shadow of that big ski jump thing in Lake Placid today I saw a wooden sign telling cyclists to ride single file on the shoulder. The sign was on a stretch of road (River Road) with no shoulder. I now read BikeSnob NYC as the sad truth and am glad he does such a great job of addressing the problems and making them public in an entertaining way.
