Just two weeks ago, a Bushwick bicyclist was struck to death in East Williamsburg by a reckless truck driver. In an effort to create safer biking conditions, the city announced 30 miles of new protected bike lanes citywide in 2020, with 10 miles in Brooklyn, that the Department of Transportation has committed to, as part of the Mayor’s Green Wave plan.
