Cyclists Ride A Green Wave Across New York City.
New York is re-engineering some streets with bike routes to speed your travel...on a bicycle. Traffic signals are getting tweaked to adjust their timing to vehicles travelling at 15 mph, which is more bicycle friendly than the default 25 mph speed for cars and trucks. Bicyclists will catch a wave of green lights and glide through intersections without having to stop. Drivers who go faster than 15 mph will hit red lights.
