The New York City Police Department has ramped up its ticket blitz on reckless cyclists in Central Park over the weekend after a deadly bicycle accident on Thursday.
Police issued more than 100 summonses between Friday and Sunday.
Violations include running red lights, failing to yield to pedestrians, and wearing headphones while riding.
Bikers who spoke with NY1 say they are trying to be more careful, but point out that safety is a two way street.
"I definitely think pedestrians and cyclists both need to be more aware, but cyclists do have to, you know, follow the rules that motorists so as well, and I do think that there are some cyclists that think that they can just fly through lights at any speed," said one bicyclist.
"The pedestrians just feel like it's a park and it's not, I mean that's a park over there this is a road, it might as well be a highway so at the same time we are trying to be more careful but the pedestrians have to be more careful too," said another bicyclist.
The crackdown came days after 58-year-old Jill Tarlov was hit by a cyclist near West 62nd Street.
Tarlov suffered severe head trauma and later died of her injuries.
