In the event that you suffer a crash caused by the NYPD and are thinking about suing, you should know that any legal case against the NYPD requires a notice of claim to be filed against the City of New York within 90 days of the crash.

Christopher Street, Manhattan.  March 31.  Submitted by PvA, who says:

"I bike a lot in the West Village with my 2 yr old. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to move out of the relative safety of the bike lane into traffic with her to avoid cops parked in bike lanes. A few months ago I pointed out how dangerous this was to a cop blocking the bike lane. His response? Get off your bike and walk around on the sidewalk!"

Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect….yep.
