Cars on the Riverside Drive service road, as seen in a video made by advocates for more safety rules.
Community Board 7’s Transportation Committee will be meeting on Tuesday night at 250 West 87th Street at 7 p.m. to discuss the dicey situation for pedestrians on Riverside Drive service road, among other issues. Some residents have been advocating for more action to make cars slow down on the road between 97th and 100th Street (speed bumps were installed from 92nd to 95th Street after community pressure).
