Take the Poll: Is a Bike Ban the Right Idea for Roosevelt Island Promenades Now?
Roosevelt Island promenades reflect the traditional intent: They are there for walking, but times change. Other users, especially bikes, share the space. This raises a lot of issues, from safety to comfort, and we’re offering a poll, asking your opinion.
Local leadership is lacking on this challenge, and we hope hearing from residents jells RIOC into taking some kind of action.
This survey is 100% confidential, and the results will be shared publicly and presented to RIOC and its board. Feel free to add your comments or even an alternative response if those offered don’t fit with you.
All will be respected equally.
Take the survey…
In the end, although the top response was “A ban is not needed,” a majority voted in favor of increasing control (38.7%) or a total ban (14.86%).
But RIOC rung up 100% in indifference, not responding at all and changing nothing. After all, it’s all about them, isn’t it?
