Tell me about it. I drove a taxi on and off in NYC since 1981 (I quit for good 2 years ago but who knows) The best (or worst) I ever seen was about 8 years ago on Queens blvd when one of these Lance Armstrong clones wearing the tight spandex and the fashionable head gear decided he had the right of way over a truck and decided to cut him off then give him the finger (which they did to me while I was driving about a billion times).
Only problem was the truck didn't see him and you know the rest. It's amazing how much the human body twitches after it's dead. And this was right by Elmhurst hospital in which someone suggested I take what was left of him in my taxi to the emergency room. When I inquired by what method we should retrieve his brains the subject was dropped.
And the thing is, this happens every-single-day under Bloomberg
Even happened to one of his pals Alan Dershowitz. You think that would end his fanatical promo of bicycles? Hellllll no! It's soda and smoking and eating trans-fats which is the killers not riding a bike in between multi-ton hunks of metal going 60 mph.
Look at this: He rips the DA but not Bloomberg. Now *that* is some major ass kissing.
Alan Dershowitz rips Manhattan DA over sister-in-law's bike death: They're stonewalling us!

Thank you for contributing your first hand experience, fellow NYer.
