Cop to Central Park Cyclists: Your Safety Matters Less Than a Squirrel's - Thumbtacks Plague NY Bike Riders
Thumbtacks in the bike lanes of central park in New York are plaguing cyclists and some of the comments have not been kind to the bike riders of New York.
One of the cops seemed to say to the cyclists that their safety matters less than a squirrel's safety.
“We have more important things to worry about, like people getting shot and squirrels getting run over,” said one cop, according to Streetsblog.
“A flat tire is not the crime of the century.”
NY Mag has this headline, 'Someone — a Runner, Probably — Is Trying to Kill All the Central Park Cyclists, or at Least Ruin Their Tires'
A quote from a cyclist seems to be the sorce of the headline.
"I really don’t want to point fingers, but some think it could have been a disgruntled runner," the bike rider said. “There is kind of a rivalry in the park between cyclists and runners."
Reports indicated that the tacks began to appear on July 3 as riders had an unusual number of flat tires while they biked through Central Park.
While some of the cyclists were only inconvenienced, others tumbled off their bikes when their tires went immediately flat.
