Ticket Bus Drivers
During the past several months, the 100 and 101 Precincts have been pulling over “Dollar Vans” and setting up numerous Insurance / Registration Checkpoints along Beach Channel Drive allegedly for “safety” reasons.
I would like to know when they are going to begin issuing summonses to the drivers of the Q22 busses, several of whom routinely use the “Bike Lane” on Beach Channel Drive as a “Bus Lane.“
I have witnessed several near misses of busses almost hitting pedestrians (including those with small children) and vehicles when the B22 bus sped down the “Bike Lane” to the right of slow moving vehicles on Beach Channel Drive, primarily between Beach 35 Street and Beach 73 Street.
If our police precincts are serious about issuing summonses for safety reasons, then it’s time for them to start issuing them to the drivers of the Q22 busses who illegally use the bike lane as a bus lane!
