Check Out The Weekly Carnage

Spurred by the latest NYPD “war on cyclists,” who seem to think that targeting bikers is the solution to all that ails New York, Aaron Naparstek over at Streetsblog has debuted a weekly feature called The Weekly Carnage.

Streetsblog says:
Every Friday morning we will tally up and present the previous week's motor vehicle mayhem throughout the region -- deaths, injuries and property destruction. It's a grim accounting but we feel like someone's got to do it.
The first in the series links to 23 gory car crashes. It’s a good reminder that although bikers aren't always perfect citizens of the road (who is, really?), cars pose the more serious danger on the streets.
