Our Town Kallos Bike Safety Forum by Our Town
Kallos Bike Safety ForumPUBLISHED APR 11, 2016 AT 3:51 PM (UPDATED APR 11, 2016) More than 100 fast food delivery bike workers joined East Side Councilmember Ben Kallos for training by the Department of Transportation in English, Spanish and Chinese on traffic rules and bike safety.
“Please take your time, obey traffic laws, and wear safety vests so that residents know which restaurants have good drivers and which restaurants don’t,” Kallos told a crowd of delivery bike workers. “Starting soon doorman buildings may stop accepting deliveries from people without safety vests.”
Kallos’s Bike Safety Program distributes safety materials and equipment such as bells, lights, vests and helmets; trains cyclists on safe practices and traffic laws; and calls for increased enforcement by the New York Police Department against unsafe cyclist behavior.
