I note that the police have stopped commenting on what sexual assault victims were wearing. And police have stopped advising women about what to wear to reduce their risk of being the victims of sexual violence.

It is time for the victims of traffic violence to receive the same lack of victim-blaming about what they are wearing.

I also note that, in New York City, when proper protected bike lanes were installed on Prospect Park West (PPW), sidewalk riding dropped dramatically.

A quote from:

https://nyc.streetsblog.org/2010/10/22/r...

Before implementation, 46 percent of weekday cyclists on PPW used the sidewalk. Now only four percent do, and about a third of them are kids 12 and under who are allowed to do it.
