Well, the new bike lane is in on Prospect Park West and the controversh is in full-swing.
We've covered the asshole cyclists, and the asshole drivers at great length, but everyone forgot about the poor, poor mommies and they're big fat strollers!
Those bike lane bikers are whizzing by and not taking the time to carefully check if someone *might* be standing there with a Bugaboo! Or a Stokke! Also, now the bike lane is making it harder to see oncoming traffic for the mamz:
“They think they own the road, they don’t stop when they’re crossing [an intersection],” said Rita Martinez, pushing her 2-year-old son into the park. “They always think they have the right of way — sometimes they’ll just scream to get out of the way when I’m pushing a stroller!”
Perhaps this is a good time to revisit the rules of Park Slope for anyone who is unfamiliar with how shit works around here:
- Whether on land, sea, or air, BREEDERS always, always, have the right of way within the geographical boundaires of Park Slope. This right supersedes all other state laws or city regulations.
- The bigger the stroller, the *more* right of way a BREEDER will expect. Major bonus points for those double or triple strollers.
- Your bike is stupid.
- You are stupid.
