As most cyclists unfortunately know, at the beginning of October, the
NYPD clipped two dozen bikes at the Bedford Avenue L subway station in
Williamsburg. Was your bike taken by the City there or from somewhere
else around NYC?

If you think that the NYPD or another City agency took your bike,
contact T.A. We are investigating legal action to stop the City from
taking legally parked bikes,

T.A. has received dozens of e-mails and phone calls from cyclists who
got caught in the recent bike ticket blitz.

If you've been harassed or unjustly ticketed by the NYPD, contact us as

The City of New York should be encouraging bike riding, not discouraging
it. The City should make streets safe for biking and adopt the NYC Bike
Safety Action Plan
(, and the NYPD
should crack down on drivers who endanger bikers and walkers. The City
should also provide more bike racks and guarantee indoor bike parking,
not take people's bikes.

Ride safe,
Noah Budnick
Projects Director, T.A.
