NYC Pays $965,000 to Critical Mass Cyclists

According to an article  on Urban Velo, last October the city of New York paid a total of $965,000 to a bunch of cyclists who were wrongfully arrested during a critical mass…that is pretty tight.“A $965,000 settlement has been reached and was made public by the court on Monday in a civil rights lawsuit brought against the City of New York by 83 cyclists who were among hundreds arrested by the New York City Police Department on the nights of Critical Mass bicycle rides beginning just before the 2004 Republican National Convention and continuing through 2006.” Check out the full article here.

    Think of how many teachers and firemen NYC could have paid if they hadn’t wrongfully arrested these cyclists in the first place.
