NYC cops in Central Park cycling crackdown

Bikes are treated as vehicles on city streets and are legally obligated to obey traffic laws. According to the figures Wishnia cited at the meeting, his officers have given more tickets to cyclists this year than to speeding cars in the park in all of 2010.

Some cyclists are upset at the prospect of having to stop at the nearly 50 lights in the Central Park loop, and
several say they've given up riding there.
