A stretch of bumps along the Williamsburg Bridge bike and pedestrian path is finally getting smoothed out.
Many cyclists crashed and were severely injured, but to the city’s credit, they recognized this was a problem and are making it safer,” said someone from Transportation Alternatives, who led the campaign to remove the bumps.
But not everyone was happy the bumps will be removed.
Isaac Abraham, argued the bumps help to slow cyclists. Just yesterday, Abraham said his wife, Sara, was stuck by a cyclist during her daily morning walk across the bridge.
“Not only should the bumps be there, the bumps should be higher,” said Abraham, whose wife was taken to NYU Medical Center for treatment.
