State, local officials knew NYC bike path was vulnerable terror spot

The terrorist attack of October 31, 2017 was not the first time someone drove down the West Side bike path, report Rich Calder and Danika Fears for the NY Post.

In 2017 alone, more than 50 tickets were issued for illegal driving on the bike path, but no action was taken.

Only after twelve people were injured and eight more killed in last month’s attack were barricades installed to prevent vehicle traffic on the bike path.

Officials are pointing out that many other areas in New York City are vulnerable.
