We reported recently on a group that calls itself Ghost Bikes and their crusade to force the city to create a bike lane on Queens Boulevard following the tragic death of Asif Rahman, a bike rider struck and killed while passing a double−parked truck.
The city has said the bike lane will not happen, and for good reason. The problem on the “Boulevard of Death” is the danger to pedestrians. Fortunately, serious accidents involving bikers have been rare.
