Assemblywoman Tucker has withdrawn A3657. Thank You Assemblywoman.
We recommend that the City of Newark work to reduce pedestrian and bicycle conflicts using engineering, education, enforcement and yes encouragement.
- Improve bike infrastructure on the on the street network, the City is taking a bold first step by building the State's first Cycletrack on Mt. Prospect Ave in 2011.
- Restrict bikes on sidewalks for bicyclists in areas with significant pedestrian traffic
- Implement a media campaign (billboard, TV, radio) example NYC DOT's Look campaign.
- Encourage people to walk and bike more often, capitalizing on the momentum of Mayor Corey Booker's "Lets Move! Newark" campaign.
